This suite comprises five movements from the incidental music Coleridge–Taylor wrote for a 1912 production of Othello at His Majesty’s Theatre. The composer put together the suite soon after but sadly it's not often performed today. This new reduction will hopefully go some way in reintroducing Coleridge–Taylor's delightful take on Othello to ensembles and audiences alike.
