Riccardo, the young and popular king, is planning a masked ball. His secretary and close friend Renato has become aware of conspirators who want Riccardo dead. Unbeknownst to Renato, the king is in love with Renato’s wife Amelia. When Riccardo eavesdrops on Amelia and hears her confess that she loves him, a chain of events is unleashed that leads inexorably toward tragedy. This remarkable opera is one of Giuseppe Verdi’s great achievements and a can’t-miss event. Each program is accompanied by a pre-show lecture an hour before curtain, with a talk-back session immediately following the performance.
