About Un Ballo in Maschera

Accompanied by a thrilling score, Verdi’s vivid characters grapple with life and love, betrayal and death. Director David Alden’s dreamlike setting provides a compelling backdrop for this dramatic story of jealousy and vengeance. Marcelo Álvarez stars as the conflicted king; Sondra Radvanovsky is Amelia, the object of his secret passion; and Dmitri Hvorostovsky is her suspicious husband. Kathleen Kim is the page Oscar, and mezzosoprano powerhouses Dolora Zajick and Stephanie Blythe take turns singing the fortuneteller Ulrica. Fabio Luisi conducts.

Production a gift of the Betsy and Edward Cohen/Areté Foundation Fund for New Productions and Revivals, and Paul and Daisy Soros.

Additional funding from The Gilbert S. Kahn and John J. Noffo Kahn Foundation, and Mr. and Mrs. William R. Miller.

In Italian, with English subtitles.
