This November, two Vancouver companies will welcome audiences to opera's most famous masked ball. The award-winning artists of Opera Mariposa and the Heroic Opera Company will present Verdi's Un ballo in maschera. The production features two casts of performers from across five continents, directed by Vancouver Opera's Adam Da Ros and veteran music director Richard Epp.

In Un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball), a secret love triangle and a political conspiracy collide one fateful night at a masquerade. The opera has a controversial history, having originally been blocked by censors for depicting the assassination of a monarch. Verdi was forced to change the setting, the characters, and even the title in order to bring the opera to the stage. Now, over 150 years after Ballo's 1859 premiere, Mariposa and Heroic are restoring the original plot and bringing Verdi's masked ball to life with a stellar international cast.
