A highly charged story unfolds behind the roaringly glamorous operatic title: an assassination attempt on an open stage. True faces are hidden behind masks, while themes of love, jealousy, intrigue, betrayal and murder provide the ideal basis for Verdi's exacting dramatic style. In this "Dramma di sentimento", the power of human passions and emotions can overturn and change systems and worlds.
