About

It’s more than just a cornerstone of opera repertoire; it’s also one of the most heartfelt of all stage works. Rigoletto is the unforgettable tale of a father’s rage, a daughter’s shame and a self-centered ruler who thinks he can get away with anything. Several of Verdi’s best-known tunes accentuate this timeless tragedy of sacrifice, betrayal and revenge.

The powerful and arresting staging by Mark Lamos features striking scenic perspectives and elaborate period costumes.
