it's fucking addictive.
*and another one falls in love with the evocative beauty of Shakespeare's masterful penmanship*
Are you addicted to all Shakespearean tragedies, or does Othello have a particular hold on you?
Iago was totally the best villian ever.
Am I the only person who thought he was talking about the board game?
Thank's to Verdi's adaptation Otello, Iago is one of the best villains in the world of opera as well. Scarpia is the only operatic villain that can match him.
No, but you were the only person who failed to appreciate the rich irony of Shakespeare's subtexts.
Oh yeah, I just love that one. Always had a weak spot for martyred, Christ-like heroines like Desdemona. :smile:
Might be my favorite of the tragedies.
I like the play as well. Especially with Cowboy Curtis playing the lead.
I find that play disturbing on soooo many levels. In spite of the fact that Laurence FIshburne played a wonderful Othello, I could not sit through it. All three main characters Othello,Desdemona, and Iago make my skin crawl. It may be my own issues, but I suppose it is so timeless that we hear about variations on this theme everyday in the news and it is heartbreaking.
I love the comedies, especially A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing and As You Like It, but there's something about the tragedies that stays with you longer: they haunt you. Othello, Hamlet and MacBeth remain my three favourite Shakespearean works.
I love those too. MacBeth has it all - the original blockbuster.
Look at the brain on these LPSG boys! Whoever said men with large penises were lacking in the mind department obviously hasn't visited this board. God, I need to rethink the whole purpose of the universe now. How can the world even out if a man has a big cock and a big brain?
It ruins me for all time. Now I'll always want both (since I know it really does exist.) You guys are not making it easy for me to find the right guy.... my standards just went way up.
Oh no. The biggest villian in the history of opera is Alban Berg for writing Wozzeck. *shudder*
My offer still stands.
You don't like Wozzeck?! I'll take it over Philip Glass's Einstein on the Beach any day!
nope i did too
One word: MacBeth.
Oh, I don't know... The Queen of the Night is a pretty good villain, too. Not too much dramatically, but when she starts in with "Die Hoelle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen," she's scary. Hmm, my twisted mind just envisioned Mariah Carey doing this aria...
HickBoy, I'm betting that your addiction to Othello, the board game, revolves around flipping over your white piece to find a black piece. Very telling, indeed!:wink:
Unfortunately, they're blue and yellow in this version. Wonder what that means?
