Notes & Reviews:
This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as BOA 1017D. Passion, loyalty and political conspiracy are the three pillars of 'Un ballo in maschera' (1859), the "most operatic of all operas". Set in 19th-century Boston, Mario Martone's atmospheric production for the Teatro Real brings out all the innate theatricality and drama of Verdi's work. World famous Argentinean tenor Marcelo Alvarez, in the role of Riccardo, leads a fabulous cast including Lithuanian soprano Violeta Urmana as his lover Amelia, and Elena Zaremba as the witch Ulrica. Jesus Lopez Cobos conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real in a performance that emphasizes the lyricism and majesty of this wonderful work, in which grand opera and opera comique are woven together with classic Italian style.
