Opera Holland Park will be putting on a production of Un Ballo In Maschera.

Giuseppe Verdi's opera is a tale of political intrigue and illicit love, all wrapped around a baleful prophecy.

The story is based on the true-life tale of Swedish King Gustav III who was murdered during a masked ball. Verdi added in a tense love triangle and gave us an intimate portrait of three people whose loyalties are tested in public and private, as Amelia struggles to remain faithful to her husband.

The opera is much-loved for its glittering dance music and choral writing, and its closing hymn is widely regarded as Verdi's finest.

Note: The Holland Park Theatre is basically just a big white canopy in the middle of Holland Park, using Holland House as its backdrop. Be aware that some of the sides are open to the air (with the canopy acting as a roof), so you might want to wrap-up warm. There are some picnic areas and refreshment areas dotted around the site which you can use during the interval and before it starts.
