Un ballo in maschera - Welsh National Opera

About this date

Love​,​ power and politics collide in Un ballo in maschera based on the real-life assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden who was shot at a masked ball in 1792. Riccardo (Gustav) adores Amelia​,​ but when her husband discovers their love affair​,​ he plots against the king​,​ leading to murder on the dancefloor. Gwyn Hughes Jones leads the cast as Riccardo in this tale of deception​,​ intrigue​,​ love and revenge. The score is one of Verdi’s most intense​,​ providing the musical passion that drives this thrilling new production. WNO Artistic Director David Pountney reunites with the same creative team behind La forza del destino for the second part of our Verdi Trilogy. What's included: 2 x tickets in best available location (stalls or grand circle guaranteed).
