This Week in History

by Christie Connolley

This Week in History Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera premiered in Napoli on February 17, 1859.  Too bad Shirley Verrett wasn’t available to sing Ulrica at the time.  Check out this audio recording of Ms. Verrett singing the witchtastic aria “Re dell’abisso affrettati.”
