Set in late 18th Century Sweden - a story of intrigue and spectacle. The subject of Verdi's A Masked Ball which dealt with adultery in high places and a political assassination within living memory, was sufficiently shocking to fall foul of Italian censors. Verdi acceded to a change of location on condition that the drama was not placed in the too distant past. New Production. Running time 2 hours 30 minutes.

Performers John Daszak (Gustavus III), Claire Rutter (Amelia), David Kempster (Anckarstroem), Rebecca de Pont Davies (Madame Arvidson), Mary Plazas (Oscar), Toby Stafford-Allen, Graeme Danby (Count Ribbing).
