Fenimore Art Museum's Glimmer Globe Theatre: Othello

Summer of Live Theatre at Fenimore Art Museum's Lakeside Amphitheater Debuts with Shakespeare's Othello

Othello, one of Shakespeare's most famously controversial tragedies, arrives in Cooperstown this summer, presented by Fenimore Art Museum's Glimmer Globe Theatre. Directed by Michael Henrici and starring Omonike Akinyemi, Michael Henrici, and Danielle Henrici, the production is set against the backdrop of beautiful Otsego Lake at the museum's Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater. 

Othello is the story of a Moorish general in the Venetian army who wins the heart of a white noblewoman, Desdemona. Despite her father's protests, they are married and Othello becomes Governor of Cyprus. This would be a "happily ever after" were it not for Iago, Othello's manipulative right-hand man who secretly hates him and plots his destruction. Iago convinces Othello that Desdemona has been unfaithful and their love unravels with fatal consequences.

Exploring enduring themes of love, jealousy, betrayal, and revenge, the title role in this production will be played by a female, highlighting questions of gender and sexual identity while also exploring race and racism. It is as timely and powerful a play today as it was hundreds of years ago.

This is the fourth season of live theatre in Fenimore's stunning lakeside amphitheater. Previous seasons include acclaimed productions of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (2017), Arthur Miller's The Crucible (2016) and Shakespeare's Macbeth (2015).

Eight live performances of William Shakespeare's Othello on the shore of Otsego Lake: July 4, 6, 8, 11, 15, 18, 22, and 25 at 7:00 pm in the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater, Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, NY Tickets available HERE!  Tickets may also be purchased at the theater the evening of any performance between 6:00-7:00 p.m. Tickets: $15 Adults, $13.50 Seniors/Members, $10 Students/Youths ages 17 and under, Free ages six and under (please select the free ticket option for children six and under when using Eventbrite). Concessions, blankets, and seat cushions will be available for purchase.

In the event of a performance cancelation due to inclement weather, all tickets will be valid for any subsequent Glimmer Globe performance for the rest of the season. Refunds are available up to seven days prior to the event through Eventbrite.
