Riccardo Muti Conducts Verdi Un ballo in maschera - Chorus Assistant Conductor


7:30 PM


Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Center, 220 S Michigan Ave
Chicago IL

History supplied Verdi with the subject matter for this gripping drama. It is based on the true story of King Gustav III of Sweden, who was assassinated during a masked ball in 1792. Combining political intrigue, a love triangle and a fortune teller’s mysterious prophecy, the opera also contains radiant choral writing and richly scored dance music. Riccardo Muti leads a concert performance featuring a spectacular cast of international singers and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
