After these performances of Un ballo in maschera Riccardo Massi will return to Mannheim in a gala performance of Madama Butterfly, will sing the same opera at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, where he will also perform Pollione in Norma. At the Semperoper Dresden and the Washington National Opera he will sing Cavaradossi in Tosca.
