IN Series
Desdemona – June 7 & 8 and Othello – June 14 & 15

An epic theater experience in two evenings.

Audiences experience Toni Morrison’s shattering and meditative play Desdemona, told with the music of the immortal Nina Simone, featuring world- renowned crossover soprano Claron McFadden. The work comes to life within a sculpture installation by renowned visual artist Maya Freelon.

Audiences then take in an audacious reimagining of Verdi and Shakespeare’s Othello, with new musical “sea-interludes” composed and performed by Matthew Evan Taylor and in an all new English poetic treatment by Andrew Albin, featuring the searing images of British visual artist Keith Piper. Multifaceted artist Maribeth Diggle takes the role of Desdemona in both evenings.
