Inspired by the real-life assassination of King Gustav III, A Masked Ball is powerful, threatening, dangerous and romantic. Although the close relationship between Sweden’s King Gustav III and Amelia, wife of his best friend, Count Anckarström, has never crossed the line, jealousy and politics cause Anckarström to join a band of conspirators and ultimately to murder the King in front of his wife at a masked ball. As he dies, Gustav reveals the truth, and in operatic tradition, pardons Anckarström. With the internationally celebrated stars Piotr Beczala, Krassimira Stoyanova, Stephanie Blythe and Aris Argiris A Masked Ball promises to be one of the most powerful operas ever seen on our stage. 1102AM
