The Naxos label had already released a DVD of a live 2008 performance at the Teatro Real in Madrid of Verdi's Un ballo in maschera under the direction of the great Spanish conductor Jesús López Cobos, who died in 2018. This release presents the audio recorded on the stage of the Vienna Opera in 2016 and marketed by the same label. This publication honours two great artists who passed away shortly after this performance: the baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky as Renato and Jesús López Cobos, who gives superb impetus to Verdi's masterpiece, at the helm of the Wiener Staatsoper Orchestra, a part of the Vienna Philharmonic.

In April 2016, the great Russian baritone's voice was already damaged by illness, and he had to start heavy chemotherapy a few weeks after this series of performances, cancelling several of his contracts. However, he remained utterly committed to this role, in which he played a jealous man in a performance full of powerful despair. Polish tenor Piotr Beczała won great acclaim in the role of King Gustav III of Sweden, especially for his duet with Krassimira Stoyanova's splendid Amelia.

As expected, Nadia Krasteva brings a visionary treatment to the spectacular role of the gypsy witch Ulrica. Israeli soprano Hila Fahima plays the charming page Oscar with an agility that is both casual and precise. An excellent reflection of what one of the world's greatest stages can offer on a daily basis. © François Hudry/Qobuz
