“This is the Ballo which, above all else, glories in Muti as an exuberant man of the theatre. The impetus with which he whips up the constituent parts of an ensemble into the vortex, and the juxtaposition of blasting tutti with slim, sweetly phrased woodwind detail, so typical of this opera, hits the ear more thrillingly than ever.” — The Gramophone Classical Music Guide (on Riccardo Muti’s 1975 recording of Un ballo in maschera with the New Philharmonia Orchestra)

Renowned Italian conductor Riccardo Muti — known for his personal and compelling interpretations of the music of Giuseppe Verdi — leads a thrilling cast of soloists in Un ballo in maschera, the story of the assassination of Riccardo, Earl of Warwick and governor of Boston, at a masked ball and the supernatural mystery and love story that surrounds it. Richard Tucker sings the lead role of Riccardo alongside Orianna Santunione singing Amelia. Recorded live at the Teatro Comunale di Firenze, January 1974.
