William Liu wows the crowd.

Opera is often seen as an exclusive and sometimes intimidating world to break into, this event was a fantastic example of breaking down those walls. The event felt light-hearted and intimate. Hahn, who hosted the evening was charming and warm, making time to talk to many of the attendees. The performances themselves had attendees audibly wowed by the stunning quality of tone and range shown by the performers. It was also a chance to sample a little of what the fall production will have in store, with an exclusive preview performance of highlights from Un Ballo in Maschera itself.

Spectacular Nancy Hasiuk

For Un Ballo in Maschera Opera Mariposa will be joining forces with the Heroic Opera Company, for an all-new production of the operatic masterpiece. Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera, or A Masked Ball, is a story of a secret love triangle and a political conspiracy both come to a head on a single night at a masquerade. This tale of passion, deception, and intrigue features a huge, lush score and arguably some of the best dramatic music ever written, so you will not want to miss your chance to see it brought to life by a stellar cast from across North America, Europe and Asia!
