OTELLO is a recording of a stage performance, by the New York Metropolitan Opera, of Verdi's adaptation of Shakespeare's play.
Otello refers to his wife as a 'whore', accusing her directly on a couple of occasions.
There are some highly theatrical scenes of violence, including sword fights, a strangulation and a suicide by stabbing, none of which contain any strong detail.
