PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER         

Jesús Quiñones Ledesma

Cassio is swayed by Iago’s persistence to reach out to Desdemona, suggesting that her influence could persuade Otello in reinstating his job.   Cassio heads out towards the garden to chat with Desdemona, while Iago waits for Otello to arrive at the courtyard. Cassio and Desdemona engage in a friendly conversation, and Otello sees nothing alarming.  However, Iago’s continues to imply that something is going on. Thereafter, Desdemona and Otello are left alone. She initiates a conversation concerning Cassio. This time, Otello’s demeanor becomes apprehensive and begins to have feelings of doubt.

Teresa Pérez Frangie

as Desdemona

Desdemona offers Otello her handkerchief, but he deliberately rejects it and lets it drop down to the ground.  Emilia softly picks the handkerchief up, but Iago maliciously yanks it away from her and holds on to it until he is left alone with Otello.  Once again, Iago carries on suggesting that Desdemona has been unfaithful.  Disbelieving Iago’s accusation, Otello demands for proof. Iago shows Desdemona's handkerchief telling Otello that he obtained it from Cassio the day before. Otello becomes enraged, and embarks a plan to take revenge with Iago’s help.
