Othello,’ Made New

At Guild Hall

    A new production of Shakespeare’s “Othello” from London’s National Theatre will be screened at Guild Hall on Saturday at 7 p.m. Directed by Nicholas Hytner and starring Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear, both Olivier Award-winning actors, the production transposes the action from 16th-century Venice to a contemporary military installation. Tickets to this encore presentation of National Theatre Live are $18, $16 for Guild Hall members.

    “The Nose,” Dmitri Shostakovich’s satiric opera based on Gogol’s story of a St. Petersburg official whose nose leaves his face and develops a life of its own, is the next program in The Met: Live in HD series at Guild Hall. The production, designed by William Kentridge and starring Paulo Szot, will be screened Oct. 26 at 1 p.m. Mr. Kentridge, a South African artist best known for his prints, drawings, and animated films, has staged several operas, most notably Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” at La Scala and other venues. Tickets are $22, $20 for members, $15 for students.
