Guiseppe Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera (A Masked Ball)

Filmed live at the National Theater in Munich. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
Approximate running time is 2 hours and 25 minutes.

“A formidable vocal feast”, Verdi’s historically-based tale of illicit love, conspiracy and betrayal unfolds in a surrealistic, shadowy setting created by director Johannes Erath. The legendary Zubin Mehta conducts the remarkable soprano Anja Harteros and tenor Piotr Beczała in this dream of a production (Bayerische Staatszeitung).
