Experience the emotional intensity of Giuseppe Verdi's 'A Masked Ball' (Un Ballo in Maschera) in this production by Götz Friedrich at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Un Ballo in Maschera is a classic example of Verdi's new aesthetic of verità, which expands the palette of expression available to composers in musical drama. The mood swings of the two main characters, swaying and changing between longing and guilt, are reflected in the rich aural tapestry - musical contrasts, sharp punctuations, and syncopal structures all give expression to the intensity of feeling. It is, above all, in the music where the drama unfolds, with Götz Friedrich and his two set designers bringing their deft touches to the actors and the visual impression created on stage.

In Italian with German and English surtitles
