Quick Reference

1 (Verdi: Un ballo in maschera). (Amelia also in Amer. vers.) Sop. Wife of Captain Anckarstroem, the King's secretary and friend. King Gustavus is in love with Amelia. In a field near Stockholm, she eventually admits that the feeling is mutual, but they must sacrifice these feelings and she will remain faithful to her husband. Their meeting is interrupted by the arrival of Anckarstroem and Amelia covers her face with a veil. Anckarstroem offers to escort her back to the gates of the city. They are interrupted on the way by conspirators plotting against the King and Amelia's veil is pulled off, revealing her identity to her shocked husband. She accompanies him to a masked ball at the palace where he kills Gustavus. Arias: Come avrò di mia mano quell'erba (‘When the herb is in my hand’); Consentimi, O Signore (‘Grant me, O Lord’—known as Amelia's Prayer); Morrò, ma prima in grazia (‘Before I die, one last wish’). Created (1859) by Eugenia Julienne‐Dejean.
