In Shakespeare's tragedy first performed about 1603, Othello was a highly regarded general of Venice who married Desdemona, the daughter of a Senator named Brabantia. The villain Iago leads Othello to believe her unfaithful. Othello smothers her to death before learning of her innocence, after which he kills himself. The story was set to music in operas by Rossini in 1816 and Verdi in 1887.
