Come to see principal singers perform excerpts from the Livermore Valley Opera’s forthcoming production of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera, Un Ballo in Maschera.  This free program will be presented on Sunday, February 25, 2018, from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. in the Dublin Library Community Room, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin, CA.

This popular opera contains a tragic love triangle, a sinister conspiracy, jealousy, betrayal, guilt, and forgiveness wove together with lighter moments that provide some relief in the manner of a Shakespearean tragedy.  Musically, this is one of Verdi’s most lyrically sophisticated operas.

Tenor Christopher Bengochea will be singing the role of “Riccardo.”  Soprano Sarah Cambidge will be singing the role of “Amelia.”
