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 produciton of 43rd 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 46th 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 best voice coach (Ljiljana Mrkić Popović).
