MOCKERY, MAYHEM, MISINFORMATION, MURDER.
OR AS WE LIKE TO CALL IT, ANOTHER NIGHT AT THE PALAZZO.
With Rigoletto, Giuseppe Verdi weaves a richly illuminated tapestry around traditional themes of vanity, pride, avarice, spiritual corruption and festering recrimination. In this cautionary tale, compromised morals are the order of the day. It’s hard to predict where fate’s fickle finger will point when there’s a reconciliation of past sins. But as any Verdi fan will tell you, those books always get balanced, and nobody escapes palace intrigue without a florid, dramatically scored comeuppance!
From the Duke’s opening salvo bragging about his romantic conquests, Questa o quella (This woman or that one), to the famous quartet from Act III, Bella figlia dell’amore (Beautiful daughter of love), Verdi’s Rigoletto stitches together a revolutionary evening at the palazzo that will keep you on the edge of your seats.
Don’t curse your chance to attend this inspired performance!
