Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi
Verdi's Rigoletto: Opera's Greatest Arias and a Vengeful Hunchback
Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto
contains not only two of opera's all-time greatest arias ("Questa o quella" and "La donna è mobile") but a title character of almost Shakespearean depth and complexity. Now the story of Rigoletto, the hunchbacked jester, his daughter Gilda and the treacherous Duke he serves is staged by Verismo Opera. Although there's a curse, an assassin and a seductress, the story never sinks to the level of melodrama, as the sweeping score seems to convey the entire range of human emotion. Thanks to Verismo Opera's intimate chamber opera setting and skilled singers, you can experience the full power of Verdi's masterpiece up close at the Bay Terrace Theater.

Puccini's story of love, loss and the creative life in 19th-century Paris comes to the stage courtesy of Verismo Opera, which makes every production accessible with English supertitles, a chamber orchestra and an intimate setting, bringing you up close to the drama. In La Bohème, the poet Rodolfo and the painter Marcello are drawn into a tangle of love and jealousy after the frail Mimi knocks on their door, desperately seeking help. These youthful dreamers navigate the complicated maze of romance amid the colorful Bohemian enclaves of the city, always in search of the next adventure through life's pleasures. But the creative life can't shield them from life's harsh realities, and the flames that burn brightest tend to burn out the fastest. A huge hit when Puccini premiered it in 1896, the opera's popularity and power hasn't dimmed a bit. Learn More
