Othello is a ballet in three acts based on the play of the same name by William Shakespeare. Choreography by Lar Lubovitch is set to an orchestral score composed by Elliot Goldenthal and released commercially on the Varèse Sarabande label. Originally produced in 1997, the ballet was commissioned by the American Ballet Theatre and the San Francisco Ballet.


The score is generally less atonal than many of Goldenthal's film scores but vastly more complex as he is required to provide not only the music but also all of the complex ambience and to set the pace and rhythm for the dancers on the stage.
