19:00 Un Ballo in Maschera
Opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi. 190 min (with two intervals). Libretto by Antonio Somma based on the text by Augustin Eugène Scribe. Music Director: Giacomo Sagripanti. Director and Set Designer: Davide Livermore. Sung in Italian. Today there are three versions of the libretto and therefore three locations – Boston, Naples and Stockholm. The Bolshoi’s production is staged by a team of Verdi’s compatriots, however, they set this bloody story in America, as it was at the premiere of the opera. And the choice of the location became the main inspiration for the visual concept of the production. Davide Livermore, a director and a stage designer, is an expert on works not only by Verdi, but also by Hitchcock, the most influential American filmmaker of the psychological thriller genre. The style and suspense of his films – that’s what should be sensed by the audience of our "Italian" performance placed in America.
