The Met Live HD....Un Ballo in Maschera coming tomorrow

Once again the Met is offering people throughout the world to come and see a live Metropolitan Opera performance at a theater near you.

Accompanied by a thrilling score, Verdi's vivid characters grapple with life and love, betrayal and death. Director David Alden's dreamlike setting provides a compelling backdrop for this dramatic story of jealousy and vengeance. Marcelo Álvarez stars as the conflicted king; Sondra Radvanovsky is Amelia, the object of his secret passion; and Dmitri Hvorostovsky is her suspicious husband. Kathleen Kim is the page Oscar, and mezzosoprano powerhouses Dolora Zajick and Stephanie Blythe take turns singing the fortuneteller Ulrica. Fabio Luisi conducts.

For those who live near us in Loudoun County it will be playing at the Cobb Theatre in Leesburg, VA. Hope to see you there.
