Notes & Reviews:

This DVD features Luciano Pavarotti in one of his most celebrated roles in a classic, all-star performance of one of the great Verdi operas, 'Un Ballo in Maschera'. Available for the first time on DVD, the complete opera of the classic 1980 production by Elijah Moshinksy was filmed live at the Metropolitan Opera. This was an eye-catching and thought-provoking production in which Moshinsky staged the action in pre-revolutionary 1774 Boston. Extras include an interview with Luciano Pavarotti and James Levine.
