Political intrigue, illicit love and a baleful prophecy fuel Verdi’s 1859 opera. Based on the story of the assassination of Gustav III, Un ballo in maschera sets a tense love triangle against the background of a murderous conspiracy. Reason and superstition vie for supremacy as Amelia struggles to remain faithful to her husband in the opera that was dubbed ‘Verdi’s Tristan’.
