Rigoletto

by Giuseppe Verdi

 

This stunning new production was directed by Melbourne’s Greg Carroll and designed by Peter Corrigan, who created a spartan, hard-edged set for Her Majesty’s Theatre, to fit with the dark themes of this dramatic opera.

 

From the play Le Roi s’Amuse by Victor Hugo with a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, Verdi’s Rigoletto is one of the most popular operas ever written. Featuring such well known arias as La Donna e Mobile and Caro Nome, it tells the tragic story of a father’s thwarted revenge on the man who abducted his daughter.
