Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera ( A Masked Ball) —New Production
December 8, 2012, 12:55 pm ET
Sondra Radvanovsky, Marcelo Álvarez, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky lead an “excellent cast who bring all the emotion, tenderness, and tension to a score that is both exciting and haunting.” (Huffington Post)
As the conflicted king, Marcelo Álvarez delivers one of his most dramatically charged and refined performances at the Met, [singing] with subtlety, shadings and soaring lyricism. Dmitri Hvorostovsky’s “trademark dark sound and supple phrasing… poignantly brought to life” the pain of the betrayed Count Anckarström. (New York Times)
Sondra Radvanovsky “was a special triumph, her powerful, penetrating voice filling the house with refulgent sound” in the role of Amelia. (AP)
Alden’s production is an “intriguing fresh look at one of the essential works of the repertory.” (AP)
Approximate runtime: 3:54
