A Masked Ball 2015 

Once again Burry Port came up trumps with their production of Verdi`s A Masked Ball. As soon as the orchestra started playing I knew we were in for a special evening.

The principals Robert Abate "Gustav", Catrin Aur "Amelia", Michael Dewis "Ankerstrom," Emanuela Barazia Joll "Ulrica”, Mary-Jean O`Doherty "Oscar", Gwyn Morris " Count Ribbing" Kees Huysmans, "Count Horn" Benjamin Anthony "Christian", Anita Appleton "Chief Magistrate and Shannon Treharne as "Servant to Amelia" were all in fine voice with very clear diction and superb interpretation of the story.

A well balanced and well rehearsed chorus made up the ladies and gentlemen of the court. A simple but colourful set along with some very fine costumes befitting the period added to the overall success of the production. The orchestra once again under the direction of Ryan Lee fulfilled their duties admirally. Congratulations to Keith Clarke and the production team. Certainly an evening to remember
