The love between a father and a daughter is pushed to the limit in Rigoletto, Verdi’s dark tale of betrayal and vengeance.
David McVicar‘s immensely popular production, in period costume, brings the 15th-century court of Mantua alive: its womanizing Duke, the court jester Rigoletto bent on revenge and his daughter, Gilda, who the Duke loves but still destroys.
A celebrated score of familiar music conducted by John Eliot Gardiner, and a drama of the passions of love and hate.
