conductor Dmitri Mitropoulos

The Tuesday Night Opera presents Giuseppe Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera (8:00 PM). Verdi was fascinated by the assassination of the Swedish king Gustavus III. Around that account he spun a tale of lust, betrayal, and tragedy. Download the libretto here and tune in to WFMT at 8:00 PM on Tuesday. The broadcast features Dmitri Mitropoulos conducting a 1955 performance from the Metropolitan Opera with Zinka Milanov, Roberta Peters, Marian Anderson and Jan Peerce. Less than a year before, Marian Anderson became the first African American to sing at the Met.
