September 13, 1990: Ballo in Maschera in Oslo

1990-09-13 Un Ballo in Maschera (Verdi), Den Norske Opera (Oslo)

Gustaf III = Franco Bonanome
Ancharström = Jan Sødal
Amelia = Kjersti Ekeberg
Grev Claes Horn = Gudjon Oscarsson
Grev Adolf Ribbing = Terje Stensvold
Oscar = Elizabeth Norberg-Schulz
Ulrica Arvidsson = Anne Gjevang

Antonio Pappano, conductor




I am sorry to say that I only remember vividly Elizabeth Norberg-Schulz as Oscar. She was boyish enough. Whether Franco Bonanome was a great Gustaf or Kjersti Ekeberg an Amelia on par with Karita Mattila or if Anne Gjevang as Ulrica was better than Elisabetta Fiorillo in 2004 London's Ballo, I guess it was good.... but I do not remember it.
