Sat 4 Nov A Masked Ball


A Masked Ball tells a tale of forbidden love, political conspiracies, fortune telling, betrayal and tragedy.

The cast is led by Mark Ellse (Renato), Lyndsey Evans (Edgar), Mike Hammond (Silvano), Julie Van Haperen (Amelia's servant), Glyn Jones (Tom), Laurence Lewis (the Magistrate), Martin Muir (Riccardo), Anna Murgatroyd (Oscar), Simon Thompson (Samuel), Ami Walsh (Ulrica), and Liz Williams (Amelia). The production will be directed by Mark Ellse, and Kate Wishart returns as Musical Director.

Whilst preparing for a masked ball, Prince Riccardo is informed by his friend and advisor, Renato, that there are people conspiring against him; Riccardo refuses to believe him.

After being informed by Ulrica (the local fortune-teller) that he's going to be killed by a friend, Riccardo intercepts Amelia, the wife of Renato. They confess their forbidden love for each other, but unfortunately for them, Renato discovers them together and vows to join the conspirators in the plot to assassinate Riccardo.

Will Renato go through with the assassination of his friend? All will be revealed at The Masked Ball.

Featuring beautiful music by Verdi, A Masked Ball will be performed in English.
