A Masked Ball Preview

Episode first aired on 10/31/2012

In Verdi's A Masked Ball (Un Ballo in Maschera), a King is conspired against, and is ultimately betrayed by his most trusted friend. This rich theatrical tapestry is woven of illicit love, a fortune-teller, a masked ball, and as many vows of vengeance as can be packed into three hours. Verdi's much-loved work is Italian opera at its very best.
