Othello is one of Shakespeare’s four great tragedies, an immortal tale of jealousy, passion, envy and hate with Vojin Ćetković in the role of Othello and Nikola Đuričko in the role of Iago – both of them at the height of their acting powers – directed by Miloš Lolić, one of the most successful and exciting young directors.

Lolić directed his first production at Yugoslav Drama Theatre The Other Side by Dejan Dukovski in 2006 on Bojan Stupica stage. Two years later, he directed Dreamers by Robert Musil, the winning production of 43 rd Bitef theatre festival. After the three seasons he spent directing productions in Austria, Slovenia and Germany and great successes and awards at festivals such as Borštnikovo srečanje in 2011, Bayerische Theatertage 2012 and 46 th Bitef as well as the most prestigious Austrian theatre award ‘Nestroy’ for best young director in 2012, Lolić’s return to the stage of Yugoslav Drama Theatre was at the same time his first encounter with the greatest playwright of all times.

At the Mediterranean Theatre Festival in Tivat, this production won awards for best actor (Vojin Ćetković), best acting bravura (Nikola Đuričko) and special award for artistic achievement (Ljiljana Mrkić Popović for voice coaching). Lolić’s Othello was performed at the International Small Scenes Theatre Festival in Rijeka and Sterijino Pozorje theatre festival in Novi Sad.

The production opened on our Ljuba Tadić stage on 23 rd December, 2012 with the cast including Vojin Ćetković, Nikola Đuričko, Milena Živanović, Branislav Lečić, Radovan Vujović, Dubravka Kovjanić, Nikola Rakočević, Ljiljana Međeši, Goran Daničić, Dubravko Jovanović, Stefan Bundalo/Lazar Đukić, Dejan Dedić and Ivan Pantović.
