Un Ballo in Maschera

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That’s what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best.
