The article deals with the stage metaphors of Verdi's Otello with particular interest in the 1967 Brno production, directed by Miloš Wasserbauer. The main metaphor discussed is that of containment. The author compares Wasserbauer's interpretation with former and later productions depicting the main stage metaphors. The first part of the article deals with the stage metaphors inherent in both Boito's libretto of Otello and in Shakespeare's Othello. The second part of the article focuses on essential elements of staging which are rooted in Otello (including the score). The third part analyses the staging practice of Otello with special regard to Wasserbauer's production. The methodological apparatus of the article is inspired by the Conceptual Metaphor Theory (CMT).
