Marco Armiliato conducts Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role of a noblewoman who is tricked into marrying the brutal Gianciotto, sung by Mark Delavan, instead of her true love Paolo, sung by Marcello Giordani. Robert Brubaker sings the wicked Malatestino, whose jealousy incites a murder.. Approximate running time: 300 minutes.. Tickets are $25 ($22 members; $18 students) and may be ordered online or by calling 413 458 0MET (458 0638).
