the Moor of Venice is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in approximately 1603, and based on the Italian short story "Un Capitano Moro"

The work revolves around four central characters:

Othello, the Moor: A general in the Venetian military.
Desdemona, Othello's wife and daughter of Brabantio
Iago, Othello's ensign and Emilia's husband, a villain. He hides his real nature under the veil of 'honesty'.
Cassio, Othello's lieutenant.

The play deals with themes of racism, love, jealousy and betrayal. Nevertheless the story is still timely.
