A Masked Ball. Un Ballo in Maschera, by Giuseppe Verdi
presented by Livermore Valley Opera
The words alone create notions of mystery, intrigue and romance. King Gustav III of Sweden loves the wife of his best friend, unaware that she returns his love. Her husband discovers their love. To get revenge, he joins conspirators who also want to kill the King. He kills the King at a masked ball, never realizing until too late that they are innocent of any wrongdoing. Musical highlights reflect the themes of betrayal, guilt and revenge. The lesson learned: things are not always what they seem. Sung in Italian with English supertitles
