Un ballo in maschera at the Cervantes Theatre in Malaga

This entry is about:, , , , - Note: This entry is a machine translation

Production of Opera Company presents OPERA 2001 at the Cervantes Theatre in Malaga one of the best known works of Verdi.

 1584-unballo_B_01 The Teatro Cervantes de Málaga program on February 28 and March 1 Un ballo in maschera opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi on a libretto by A. Somma.

The production will feature soloists, orchestra and choir Lyric Company OPERA 2001 and
co-production with the Opera de Massy (Paris-Sud).
Un ballo in maschera is the stunning result of the creative maturity of Verdi. Full of poetry, strength and expressiveness of great musical and intense characterization of colorful characters, is considered the most successful Verdi after Il trovatore , released six years earlier. Numerous memorable moments and arias for the showcasing of the soloists.

Based on a more or less historical fact: the assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden at a masked ball in 1792, the result of a political conspiracy hatched by a group of nobles opposition to his government, Verdi had huge problems with censorship to release his new opera. Absolutist censors Naples, where he had commissioned the work and where its premiere was scheduled, did not give their approval and demanded Verdi some modifications. The action moves from Stockholm to Boston, King Gustav III becomes the count and governor Riccardo … and so on down to the version we know today though, for some decades now, has been returning to the characters their original names.

The drama will flow under the shade of an impossible love, jealousy, betrayal and crime, all tinged with certain supernatural dyes personified in the witch and prophecies.

Eri tu che macchiavi quell’anima
