Description
Wagnerian tenor Wolfgang Windgassen takes the title role, the beautiful Croatian–Austrian soprano Sena Jurinac is Desdemona, and baritone Norman Mittelmann is a suitably malign Iago in this Austrian version of Otello, filmed in the studio. Made for television in 1965, it is sung in German, with superior acting and camerawork all around.

"Windgassen's is a full-throated, committed delivery that blends quite well with the more silvery line of Jurinac."—Opera Canada

"There are insightful moments … such as the way the camera lingers on each principal's face in turn as the great concertato of Act III is launched. The musical performance under longtime Vienna staple Argeo Quadri—live, not lip-synched—is very sound…. The chief virtue of the film lies in its preservation of two major 20th-century singers who had very limited New York (and indeed American) careers…. Dynamics are expertly handled to encompass both delicacy and violent outbursts. Very dignified but a menace when angered, Windgassen really seems to embody the character, with no telegraphed heroics or self-conscious posing…. He's magnificent in Otello's death scene…. The role showcases [Jurinac's] musical acumen and sympathetic persona, not to mention her often lovely tone in the 'Ave Maria' and many cantilena moments. "—Opera News
