Opera Holland Park to Stream Verdi’s ‘Un Ballo in Maschera’

By Logan Martell

On June 2, 2020, Opera Holland Park will stream their acclaimed production of Verdi’s “Un ballo in maschera” on their YouTube channel and website.

This video performance will mark what would have been the opening of the company’s 2020 season as the organization looks forward to being able to gather in person to perform. This production of the work was filmed as part of Opera Holland Park’s Inspire project of community outreach, which brings opera to audiences who do not normally attend theatre.

The production was directed by Rodula Gaitanou, who took the opera’s original setting of the 18th century and shifted it to 1940s.

Mathew Kofi Waldren conducts the City of London Sinfonia and a cast starring soprano Anne Sophie Duprels, tenor Matteo Lippi, and baritone George von Bergen.
