Why See La Opera - Rigoletto?

a father's rage, a daughter's shame

Welcome to the world of Verdi's finest opera where a vicious court clown finds his life torn asunder by his own bullying and scheming. Featuring some of the repertoire's most becoming and popular tunes, Rigoletto is a powerhouse in tragedy as the jester's rage leads to devastating results as the fairest part of his life is sacrificed in the name of rage and vengeance.


The jester at the court of the licentious Duke of Mantua, Rigoletto stands with his master in revelry and seduction, urging him on in his quest to have any woman he chooses, taking no mind to their cuckolded husbands. When the Duke ensnares an elderly courtier's daughter, the old man curses both the Duke and Rigoletto for his part.

Afraid of the curse, Rigoletto moves to protect his own secret at all costs; his beautiful daughter Gilda. Cosseted and allowed out only for church he is sure she will be safe from harm. But little does he know that the Duke's tastes have escaped the court and eye has fallen on the mysterious Gilda. Devastation rains solidly when the pitiful clown realises that the course of the curse is set on Gilda's and not his own actions.
