Overview

 

With Rigoletto, Verdi brings us a story of anguish and irony. Passion, treachery, filial love, and revenge—it’s all here. This timeless work features an impressive array of well-known arias (including the famous “La donna è mobile”), in which the power of the music underpins the drama of the story.

Rigoletto, a cynical jester who entertains the Duke of Mantua’s court, is also the tender, loving father of young Gilda, whom he jealously guards. When he learns that his daughter has fallen in love with the duke, a scandalous libertine, Rigoletto hires an assassin to kill the duke and avenge his honour. His plans, however, go horribly awry.

 

Sung in the original Italian with French surtitles.
