Opera Preview - A Masked Ball

What’s more exciting than political intrigue and thwarted romance?  Giuseppe Verdi’s A Masked Ball tells just such a tale, in this beautiful Austin Lyric Opera production. One of the world’s most frequently performed operas, A Masked Ball is cherished for its dynamic love triangle, struggles to remain in power and inevitable tragic demise.

Join us at Opera Preview for an sneak peek into A Masked Ball and learn more about Giuseppe Verdi, who composed this masterfully rich yet cunning drama. Furthermore, Austin Lyric Opera continues to expand its partnership with the University of Texas this year, as world renowned projection artist, Wendall Harrinton, collaborates with UT Theatre and Dance students to create an unparalleled set based on light, illusion and projected imagery. Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Maestro Richard Buckley will lead our discussion.

Bring a friend and enjoy a night of food, fun and enlightening presentations!
