Description

Verdi’s melodrama Rigoletto is a timeless tragedy and a masterpiece from beginning to end.
Rigoletto’s aim in life is to (over)protect his daughter Gilda from the evils of the world. But Gilda wants to live to the full and falls hopelessly in love with the seductive Duke of Mantua. The Duke’s omnipotence stands against Rigoletto’s powerlessness, Gilda’s joy for life against her father’s despair.

This stripped down and sensible illuminated production highlights the human drama in a ruthless world.
