Un ballo in Maschera with world singers

World singers Joyce El-Khoury and Michael Fabiano make their long-awaited return to Båstad this summer together with Swedish star baritone Fredrik Zetterström and master conductor Pier Giorgio Morandi.

After last year’s Tosca success, a special performance of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera Un Ballo in Maschera follows – this time the finale will take place on the Birgit Nilsson days in 2024 at Båstad Tennisstadion with Staffan Valdemar Holm as director.
