    I'm streaming this one. Listening to this marvelous playing, I wish I'd snapped up a CD copy while they were affordable.

    Heh heh. A "matter of costuming". Nice try.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, is there actually any official recording released with a person of color playing the part of Otello?
    Can't think of anyone, sorry.

    It is being reported elsewhere. I saw it on Facebook.

    Without going into it I don’t think there’s any recording with a black singer playing Otello. The problem is with our modern PC climate that we do not appear to recognise that the word actor means ‘mask’ And an actor is playing a part, someone he he is not. Of course an actor wearing black face to look like a Moor is not racist as he is merely playing a part. The last time I saw Othello the Shakespeare play there were two African Americans playing the parts of Othello and Iago Which not only ruined the dynamics of the play which is about racism, but was equally inauthentic, as Othello is a Moor. I am totally opposed to someone wearing black make up to mock another race as in the black-and-white minstrels but wearing dark make up to play a part seriously appears to me a far different matter.
