The king is in love with his best friend's wife, and she's in love with him. Desperate to extinguish her ardor, she turns to a sorceress for help, but too late! The secret's out and a devastated husband takes his revenge.</p><p>Verdi is at the peak of his musical and dramatic genius as he delves deeply into the psyches of three people who love, yet destroy, each other.</p> Fri, 07 Dec 2012 13:22:14 +0000 WRTI Staff 4851 at http://wrti.org The Met Opera: Verdi's UN BALLO IN MASCHERA, Dec. 8th at 1 pm
