The Royal Opera: Rigoletto

Direct from the London Stage!

The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Giuseppe Verdi’s potent masterpiece, filled with jest, magic and curses.

This acclaimed production, direct from the London stage, is directed by David McVicar.  Dimitri Platanias sings the title role, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua (Michael Fabiano).

The father of one of the Duke’s victims curses the clown for his irreverent laughter and, when the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s own daughter Gilda (Lucy Crowe), the hunchbacked jester believes the curse is taking effect.

Conducted by Alexander Joel, this popular opera is filled with many musical highlights.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
*  Contains some nudity and scenes of a sexual nature.
