Exiled to Boston: Verdi's 'A Masked Ball

THE INTRO





THE HIT SINGLE: "Eri tu"

In the Act Three monologue "Eri tu" -- "It Was You" -- Renato (baritone Gabriele Viviani) is first outraged that Amelia has been found with Riccardo, then despondent at losing her love.  





THE B SIDE: Amelia's Aria

In Act Two, Amelia (soprano Oksana Dyka) thinks she's found a special herb that will rid her of her illicit love for Riccardo -- but in the aria "Ma dall'arido ..." she hesitates to pick it, not wanting to lose her passion.
