Saturday October 29, 2013. 7:30-10PM

The Vineyard Touring Opera Company returns to the Club with Verdi’s “Un Ballo In Maschera”.

“Un Ballo In Maschera” is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi with text by Antonia Somma, which had its premiere in Rome in 1859. The story has its origin in the assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden in 1792.

The very short synopsis: Happy-go-lucky king falls in love with the wife of his best friend and most trusted advisor. Love’s passion is checked by duty while jealousy leads to conspiracy, betrayal, and murder at a masked ball.

Club members pay $5.
