Verdi's thrilling 1859 drama "Un Ballo in Maschera" (The Masked Ball) was originally set in Sweden and told the story of the 1792 assassination of King Gustav III. When met with resistance from Italian censors, Verdi chose to keep the storyline but move the setting to early-America Boston. "Ballo" weaves a love triangle between Riccardo, Governor of Boston, his friend and secretary Renato, and Renato's wife, Amelia, all against the backdrop of an assassination plot at a masked ball. Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Conducted by Nick DelBello, directed by Joseph Spann.
