Designed by takis, with sets and costumes that moved the action to the glamour and shadows of the 1940s, Un ballo in maschera was directed by Rodula Gaitanou and conducted by Matthew Kofi Waldren. French soprano Anne Sophie Duprels (Amelia), Italian tenor Matteo Lippi (Gustavo) and British baritone George von Bergen (Anckarström) led the cast, with our resident orchestra City of London Sinfonia in the pit.
Each rental of the film will offer 24 hours of access, during which time you can watch it as many times as you like.
All income from paying viewers will be shared with all freelance creatives, cast and crew, including chorus, stage management, and the company’s resident orchestra, City of London Sinfonia.
The film was originally commissioned as part of Opera Holland Park’s award-winning Inspire project to address social isolation and reach an audience resident in hospitals and care homes. Online access to Un ballo in maschera will remain free of charge to viewers in these settings.
We are also pleased to offer all viewers access to a handsomely illustrated digital programme, containing essays by the historian Professor Jeremy Black and the Verdi scholar Professor Susan Rutherford. To download the programme, visit this page.
