A classic opera portraying Shakespeare's tragically jealous hero, Otello buttresses Verdi's original Italian lyrics with English subtitles and stirs audiences with the force of a live orchestra. Inside the historic 1,472-seat Garde Theatre, gazes venture from the venue's Moroccan décor to the stage's 15th-century Venetian landscape. Here, a joyful crowd awaits the triumphant return of the military commander Otello. Yet the wicked villain Iago brews a brutal plot to ruin the hero by fanning Otello's mind into a jealous rage over the fidelity of his wife, Desdemona.

The pair's love fractures as Iago tightens his web of deceit. The dramatic tension crescendos with an operatic soundtrack, which history has often judged to be not only one of Verdi's masterpieces but also one of the finest operas ever composed. With elements of both the tender and tragic, Otello shepherds its audience across an emotional landscape strewn with the amorous warmth and the anguishing sorrow of a lawn decorated with decapitated pink plastic flamingos.

Garde Arts Center

A crimson curtain rises to unveil the operas, nationally touring musicals, children's shows, and films that pass under the historic movie palace's gilded ceiling. Originally built in 1926 as a home for vaudeville performances and motion pictures, the grand venue has survived more than eight decades with the help of The Garde Arts Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that formed in 1985 to both preserve the building and pursue its mission "to engage, enrich, entertain, and inspire the region of Greater New London." Today, the center stages a slew of performances and events that keep guests on the edges of all 1,472 seats.
