What's more timeless (and inevitably tragic) than a tale of a politician in love with somebody else's wife? Giuseppe Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera tells just such a tale, in this beautiful production from the Teatro Regio di Torino. Un ballo was banned by the Italian censors for several years before its debut, but once the public first saw and heard this gem, it's been a solid favorite ever since. Starring Gregory Kunde as the amorous Riccardo, Gabriele Viviani as the jealous Renato, and Oksana Dyka as the faithful Amelia.
