Overview
In February 1835, the cold New Orleans streets are alight with masked Mardi Gras revelers as the American Theater s impresario, Lorenzo Belaggio, brings a magnificent yet controversial operatic version of Othello to town. But it s pitch-black in the alley where free man of color Benjamin January hears a slurred whisper, spies the flash of a knife, and is himself wounded as he rescues Belaggio from a vicious attack. Could competition for audiences or for Belagio s affections provoke such violent skulduggery? Or is Shakespeare s tragic tale, with its spectacle of a black man s passion for a white beauty, one that some Creole citizen or American parvenu would do anything to keep off the stage? The soaring music will lead January into a tangle of love, hate, and greed more treacherous than any onstage drama, as he must discover who is responsible...and who will Die Upon a Kiss."
