Karajan conducts Verdi’s “Otello”
This historically important 1973 film of Verdi’s Otello preserves for us one of the greatest of all twentieth-century Otello casts and productions. For Karajan there was no greater interpreter of the role of Otello than Jon Vickers who is joined by lyric soprano Mirella Freni, another singer much revered by Karajan.
