Unmasked Love. Inescapable Fate.

King Gustav III secretly harbors a love for Amelia, the wife of his closest advisor and friend. When a visit to a fortune teller confirms that his love is reciprocated and reveals a plot against his life, the seeds of his undoing take root.

Lavish costumes adorn masked courtiers as they gossip through the political machinations of eighteenth-century Sweden. Leo Muscato’s direction makes this new-to-San Francisco Opera production a must-see return to Verdi’s thrilling drama.

Un Ballo in Maschera continues Music Director Eun Sun Kim’s exploration of the operas of Giuseppe Verdi.
