Act I. Outside the castle in a Cyprus seaport at the end of the 15th century, the crowd awaits Otello, who is arriving by sea in a storm, and prays for his fate.
After his triumph over the Muslims and overcoming the storm, he is greeted by the enthusiasm of the island people, with the exception of Roderigo, who is in love with his wife, and Jago who schemes against him, since he hates his master, involving Cassio during a rich banquet. Intoxicated by drink, Cassio challenges Montano to a duel and injures him, while Jago stirs up a brawl, which is then appeased by Otello who deprives Cassio of his rank and then takes Desdemona into the castle for their wedding night.
