In March, we will present Verdi’s OTELLO in an ambitious production worthy of our return to the Bankhead stage. The crowning work of a master composer at the peak of his creative powers, OTELLO is arguably Verdi’s greatest operatic achievement. Verdi’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragic story of deceit, jealousy and rage is an opera that ranks among his most demanding, both vocally and dramatically. This production will do justice to Verdi’s tour de force and will be an experience not to be missed. Join us March 5th & 6th, 12th & 13th.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Pre-opera talk, one hour before each opera

Opening Night Dinner at Uncle Yu’s with wine sponsored by Longevity Wines.  Separate ticket required.

Tickets available online or at the Bankhead Theater Box Office 925-373-6800, Thursday – Sunday from Noon to 6:00

Bankhead requires patrons to be fully vaccinated, have proof ID, and wear masks while inside the theater
The Bankhead Theater and LVO want all patrons to be safe. They have taken the following precautions. The Bankhead’s HVAC system exchanges the air in the theater 9.2 times each hour. That means there is FRESH AIR in the theater every 6.5 minutes. The HVAC system has been upgraded with high-quality MERV-13 filters, designed to trap very fine particles, potential allergens, bacteria, and particles that carry viruses.
