Un Ballo in Maschera
by Giuseppe Verdi
King Gustavo dismisses a fortune-teller's warning of a plot to assassinate him. But the threat becomes real when Gustavo's closest aide presumes the King is having an affair with his wife, Amelia.
Sondra Radvanovsky, Dolora Zajick, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky reprise their acclaimed interpretations in the revival of David Alden’s film noir-inspired production. Tenor Piotr Beczala sings King Gustavo for the first time at the Met in his very first collaboration with Music Director James Levine.
