Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera - New Production
Wednesday, January 9, 2013 (6:30PM local time)
Expected Running Time: 4 hours
An encore performance of Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera will be shown in select theaters on Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 6:30 PM in all time zones. Please note: not all theaters showing the live transmission will present an encore showing.
Director David Alden’s dreamlike setting provides a compelling backdrop for Verdi’s 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 Stephanie Blythe sings the role of the fortune-teller Ulrica. Fabio Luisi conducts.
Casting subject to change.
Running time is approximate.
