Considered to be the birth of Italian grand opera and one of Verdi’s most memorable creations, Rigoletto is a heartrending journey of unrelenting force powered by one recognizable melody after another. The story, based on the controversial play by acclaimed French writer Victor Hugo, resonates with a universality frequently likened to Shakespeare. Fire is fought with fire in this rapidly unfolding drama between a conniving court jester, a promiscuous duke, and an innocent daughter caught in their feud. When the jester seeks revenge, who will have the last laugh?
