Un Ballo in Maschera
  • Opera
  • 'A Masked Ball' is a three act opera by Giuseppe Verdi, loosely based on the assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden in 1792.

    "Riccardo is a leader loved by his people but surrounded by conspirators. He also nurses a secret shame: he adores Amelia, the wife of his closest friend and loyal minister, Renato.

    Renato interrupts a meeting between Amelia and Riccardo. Furious, he determines to join a conspiratorial plot to assassinate his master. At a masked ball he stabs Riccardo. With his dying breath Riccardo forgives Renato and assures him of Amelia's innocence."
