Performances will be approximately 3 hours long, sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.

Hubris and tragedy befall the hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and his beautiful daughter Gilda. When Gilda falls for Rigoletto’s master, the licentious Duke of Mantua, Rigoletto’s anger leads him to dark and dangerous avenues. One of Verdi’s masterworks, Rigoletto teaches that one can never escape a curse, and one’s evil deeds will always catch up.
