Opera in the Heights
Lambert Hall (1703 Heights Blvd)
Ballo in Maschera (Masked Ball) has forbidden love, a dark prophecy, and ultimate betrayal. Riccardo, a king loved by his people, has two problems: there are conspirators plotting his assassination, and he is in love with his best friend’s wife. It’s about to get messy at the king’s masked ball. Verdi’s emotionally charged thriller represents the quintessential master of opera at the peak of his compositional powers. Performed in Italian with English surtitles.
