A Tale so Tragic, Your Tissues will need Tissues.
When his comedic cruelty crosses the line, a hunchbacked jester named Rigoletto is cursed by a courtier, threatening his futile attempts to protect his daughter from the depravity of a powerful Duke deadset on defiling her. Verdi’s gritty revenge opera contrasts its haunting, careening storyline with radiant melodies, unforgettable arias, and some of the most recognizable music in all of opera.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
