I am proud to announce that I will be singing the role of Gilda in Rigoletto at the Metropolitan Opera. This will be a new production based in 1960's Las Vegas.
Michael Mayer’s bold new production locates Verdi’s tragedy of lust, betrayal, and revenge in Las Vegas in 1960. George Gadnidze sings the title role and Lisette Oropesa is his beautiful daughter, who falls under the spell of Vittorio Grigolo's womanizing Duke.
“Rigoletto hits the jackpot” (WQXR).
Michael Mayer “has brought theatrical flair to his operatic debut” of Verdi’s tragic masterpiece (New York Times).
Production a gift of the Hermione Foundation, Laura Sloate, Trustee and Mr. and Mrs. Paul M. Montrone
The stage production of Rigoletto contains very brief partial nudity, which will not be shown in the Live in HD transmission of the opera.
