Product Description

•••••

Arguably Giuseppe Verdi’s greatest study in chiaroscuro, Un Ballo in Maschera pits the principal characters' searing personal tragedies against the frivolity of the Royal Court of 18th-century Sweden. This live 1967 performance brings together the talents of two legendary Verdians: tenor Carlo Bergonzi and soprano Antonietta Stella, supported by a first-rate cast, including Mario Zanasi as Renato, Margherita Guglielmi as Oscar, and Lucia Danieli as Ulrica. The NHK Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of the legendary maestro Oliviero de Fabritiis. DVD Bonus: An exclusive interview with Antonietta Stella (Rome, 2008). Optional subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.
Color, 145 minutes [Bonus: 24 minutes], 4:3, All regions
