More information from organisers:

Verdi’s Shakespeare-inspired penultimate opera marks the culmination of the composer’s genius, and is one of the most powerful works in the repertory. The perfect marriage of music and drama, with scenes ranging from the grand and ceremonial to those of exquisite intimacy, Otello charts the fall of an all-powerful leader from the radiance of power to the darkness of deluded jealousy. American tenor Russell Thomas takes on the title role, alongside Armenian soprano Hrachuhí Bassénz as Desdemona and British baritone Christopher Maltman as Otello’s nemesis Iago. Daniele Rustioni conducts this revival of Keith Warner’s brooding and insightful production.

There is lift access as well as step-free routes to over 100 seats in the Stalls Circle, Balcony and Amphitheatre. There are 10 steps or fewer to some seats in the Stalls Circle, Balcony, Amphitheatre and also the Donald Gordon Grand Tier. Also please note that all seats in the Orchestra stalls are accessed by 9 steps or more. There is an Assisted Hearing Facility, and The Royal Opera House produce Audio Introductions for most Main Stage Events.
