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.
