On the anniversary weekend, an aria from “Otello,” one of this season’s premieres, will be performed in the ‘Lepanto’ gallery at Museum Brandhorst. The eponymous hero Otello returns from a great sea battle – the Battle of Lepanto, depicted by Cy Twombly, might have been a model for William Shakespeare. At the end of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera, Desdemona prays an Ave Maria. She begs forgiveness for the one who will strangle her: her husband Otello. Lepanto room, upper floor.
