An all-star cast includes Canada’s great diva Adrianne Pieczonka and the exciting tenor Dimitri Pittas.

Composed directly after his hugely successful Rigoletto, La Traviata, and Il Trovatore, Verdi’s A Masked Ball (Un ballo in maschera) depicts a deeply human tale of forbidden passion between two very grown-up lovers. This stunning production sets Verdi’s abiding love triangle in the American south of the 1960s, with its undertones of Kennedy-era tensions and power plays.
