FGO GO #SundayMatinee

This week we bring you another of our most beloved operas…Verdi’s masterpiece, Un ballo in maschera. As a special treat, we will have a Live Opera Chat during the premiere including our General Director & CEO, members of the FGO staff, and even opera stars who performed in Un ballo in maschera. This is your chance to learn amazing “behind the scenes” treasures and ask all the questions you’d like while watching the opera!

The opera is centered around Gustavo, a leader loved by his people, but surrounded by conspirators. Gustavo harbors a secret shame: he adores Amelia, the wife of his closest friend and loyal minister, Count Anckarström. Anckarström interrupts a meeting between Amelia and Gustavo. Furious, he determines to join a conspiratorial plot to assassinate his master. At a masked ball he stabs Gustavo. With his dying breath Gustavo forgives Anckarström and assures him of Amelia’s innocence.

This performance will be available until May 31, 2020.
