Soprano Nadine Benjamin, who sang Nadia in Tippett's The Ice Break with Birmingham Opera Company, is presenting a semi-staged version of Verdi's Otello at St James's Church, Piccadilly on 23 October 2015. Benjamin sings Desdemona, with Trinidad-born tenor Ronald Samm as Otello (in fact Samm was the first black tenor to sing the role) and South African baritone Denver Martin Smith as Iago. William Conway, director of the Hebrides Ensemble, conducts and Rebecca Louise Dale directs.

The opera is being presented under the aegis of Benjamin's 'arts meets business' creative mentoring programme and Benjamin is in fact a certified High Performance Coach.

Tickets are available from the St Martin in the Fields website.
