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.
