The characters in Shakespeare`s Othello
Verdi`s music for Otello

"There can’t be much complaint about (Kaufmann`s) singing`s mastery and beauty here; his eloquent phrasing and control of dynamics are exemplary whether the register is high or low...There`s a sense that he’s still feeling his way towards the part`s depths, while Vratogna`s insistent Iago and Maria Agresta`s warmly lyrically Desdemona, pointedly dressed in virginal white, are already in command."
- The Times

"Though he is in fine voice, he does not come across as the wounded animal that the greatest Otellos - Jon Vickers, Mario del Monaco - so impressively were. Kaufmann is happiest in the more lyrical passages, which become increasingly rare as the opera proceeds…I found that Marco Vratogna as Iago, though his voice is not beautiful, was the most powerful stage-presence…and I can imagine Frédéric Antoun, here singing Cassio, becoming an Otello himself in due course."
