It’s more than just a cornerstone of opera repertoire; it’s also one of the most heartfelt of all stage works. Rigoletto is the unforgettable tale of a father’s rage, a daughter’s shame and a self-centered ruler who thinks he can get away with anything. Several of Verdi’s best-known tunes accentuate this timeless tragedy of sacrifice, betrayal and revenge.

Two Italian baritones share the title role of the court jester pushed to the emotional brink: the legendary Leo Nucci and charismatic powerhouse Ambrogio Maestri. The powerful and arresting staging by Mark Lamos features striking scenic perspectives and elaborate period costumes.

In Italian with projected English translations.

In this charming musical adaptation of the award-winning book by Leo Lionni, all the mice are busy gathering supplies and getting ready for winter, except for Frederick, who seems to have his head in the clouds. But when winter comes, it’s Frederick’s collection of memories about the colors and beauty of nature that sustain his friends through the dark days. The foot-tapping country and folk-infused score only adds to the fun, making this show a perfect introduction to musical theatre for our youngest audiences.
