Verdi: Un ballo in maschera DVD (Teatro Real Madrid)

Politics and conspiracies, intensity and devotion, in the 'most operatic of all operas', Verdi's Un ballo in maschera (1859) DVD from Teatro Real Madrid. Mario Martone's production takes you right back to the 19th century Boston with the fundamental theatricality and passion of Verdi. 

A dynamic and brilliant cast is led by the loved Argentinean tenor Marcelo Álvarez in the role of Riccardo, with the acclaimed Lithuanian soprano Violeta Urmana as his lover Amelia. Elena Zaremba stuns in the role of the witch Ulrica. Jésus López Cobos conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real in a lyrical and majestic performance, uniting the grand opera and opera comique in a perfectly blended Italian style.
