Why See Opera de Montreal - Rigoletto?
Verdi's Thrilling Tragic Masterpiece
Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest masterpiece's of Verdi's prolific career, Rigoletto is an electrifying operatic thrill ride that marries jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice with some of the composers most instantly recognisable works, from the La Donna e Mobile canzone to the Bella Figlia Dell'Amore aria. Opera De Montreal presents its twisting turns and soaring musical mastery as part of its 2018/19 season, helmed by renowned Canadian stage director Michael Cavanagh.
Court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, Rigoletto amuses his patron by fixing his sharp tongue on the Duke's court of noblemen. Yet when he insults one of the gentry, the wounded nobleman in question places a curse on the fool. When the philandering Duke seduces Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda, it seems the rightly earned curse is taking effect, causing Rigoletto to take matters into his own hands with tragic consequences...
Opening night: 15 September 2018
