A Masked Ball
Originally named “Un Ballo in Maschera,” the opera is a three-act show that was written by Giuseppe Verdi in 1792. The original text had to undergo various transformations due to regulations set by the various censorship authorities of Rome and Naples in order to confirm to the political situation of France in the eighteenth century. It was by the year 1857 that the final editions of the script were completed and approved by the censor board. The very first performance of the opera was held in the year 1861 in New York and the UK premiere took place the following year. It was in 1955 that the original script of the opera was taken on by theatres and original names and the real settings started being used.
The story of the opera is set in the eighteenth century Sweden. The opera starts when the main character of the story Gustav III makes his way to the throne room of his palace where a few of his courtiers and friends are plotting against him and waiting for him to arrive. Upon the king’s arrival, his courtier informs him about an upcoming masked ball. The king seems pleased as he will get a chance to be in the presence of his minister’s wife, Amelia, who he secretly adores. As the courtiers and his friends leave, the king’s page named Oscar stays behind to warn him that the others are planning to kill him; however, the king ignores Oscar’s warning.
At the same, time a magistrate enters the throne room to request the king to banish a local fortune teller named Ulrica. Gustavo III decides to meet this fortune teller in person, whilst disguised as a fisherman, before banishing her. He makes his way to her house where he sees Amelia entering.

At that point, Gustav III’s closest and most trusted friend Anckarstrom enters and grasps the king’s hand. The king decides to banish the fortune teller following the absurdity of her palm reading.
