BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard.

In this story of evil cunning perverting a once noble mind, radio captures Iago's sly hints and boasts to the audience with shocking clarity. The listener is led along an emotional path that grips with fascinating horror until the play's inevitably tragic conclusion.

Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Adams | 1/30/2014

    " Othello is so well written, but the corruption of Iago and Othello's horrible mistake make me want to throw up every time. How blind he was! How utterly pointless all the deaths! Definitely one of Shakespeare's bests, but my stomach was in knots for Desdemona and Othello the whole time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy-Lynn | 1/8/2014

    " It read much like a daytime soap opera. It is a Shakespeare staple, and rightfully so. The devious nature of Iago keeps everything stirring around nicely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Safraz | 12/7/2013

    " Iago is the greatest villain in English literature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Christianto | 10/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 7/17/2013

    " Othello is one of my FAVORITE William Shakespeare play. I think it is creepy, dark twisted and the most insane out of all of them and although I had to read it slowly, it still sucked me in. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
