Rigoletto

August 10–28
McCaw Hall

Neil Mackenzie

Verdi’s tense and brutal tale of a megalomaniac’s bitter minion caught in a web of lechery, betrayal and revenge runs the emotional gamut in true operatic fashion. Hugely popular ever since its Venice premiere, the indelible melodrama boasts memorably complex characters and an action-packed plot propelled by a parade of iconic, unflaggingly brilliant music, especially the iconic La donna è mobile.
