Othello is an orchestral score composed by Elliot Goldenthal for Lar Lubovitch's production of the ballet in 1998 and released commercially on the Varèse Sarabande label. The ballet was commissioned by The American Ballet Theater and The San Francisco Ballet.

The score is generally less atonal than many of Goldenthal's film scores but vastly more complex as he is required to provide not only the music but also all of the complex ambience and to set the pace and rhythm for the dancers on the stage.[4]
