Un Ballo in Maschera, or A Masked Ball, is a three-act opera by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. It is one of his three masterpieces, together with the Force of Destiny and Don Carlos. Verdi wrote A Masked Ball at the peak of his genius. Containing many classical arias, it elevates romantic opera to an artistic culmination. The opera achieves true excellence by virtue of its dramatic content and musical virtuosity. The NCPA invited internationally celebrated director Hugo De Ana and his world-class team to produce the opera. De Ana has cooperated with the world famous La Scala, Rossini Opera House and Verona Opera House in productions that have won him international acclaim.
