The stage star Anthony John has sacrificed himself for his art to such an extent that he`s given up on his own existence. When performing as a young lover, he is pleasant and charming – but when he plays Othello, for example, he becomes a paranoid sociopath who is not afraid of murder. When things get that far, the theatre`s Press Officer knows exactly how to capitalise on it. ”The Tragedie of Othello, the Moore of Venice” is a sophisticated, grotesque and shrewd noir melodrama, as well as a brilliantly clever reflection on appearance and reality, stage and life: the double or half-life people sometimes succumb to, and the (at times fatal) neuroses which follow.
