How can one not love living to an evening's worth of Verdi? However, the performers were underwhelming and the sets so minimal and poorly conceived as to be embarrasing.
Much better to put on a concert version and charge $120 (instead of $240)...continued
Verdi’s powerful story of forbidden love, betrayal, and revenge promises to keep audiences enthralled. Soaring arias, gorgeous ensembles, fabulous costumes and lavish sets bring this sinister masked ball to life.
The all-star cast includes tenors Salvatore Licitra and Frank Porretta, who share the role of the ebullient and passionate King Gustavus III. Sopranos Tamara Wilson and Susan Neves portray the innocent wife Amelia with Luca Salsi and Timothy Mix sharing the role of Count Anckarström, her betrayed husband and Gustavus’ trusted friend. Mezzo-soprano Elena Manistina sings the pivotal role of the fortune teller Mam’zelle Arvidson. Conductor Daniele Callegari and director James Robinson make their WNO debuts in this stunning production from Opera Colorado.
