Frizza gives back to this Verdi score all of its beauty, its refined orchestral and harmonic writing, at the same time leading with confidence the singers: the solid Othello of the American tenor Stuart Neill, an imposing figure and a very interesting voice, rich in nuances; the lyrical Desdemona of Jessica Nuccio, debuting in this role; and the excellent Jago of Roberto Frontali, a fine Sferisterio, also thanks to an inspiring use of lighting and projections
