Palace Opera & Ballet presents Rigoletto from THE ROYAL OPERA

Based on Victor Hugo’s controversial play, Le Rois’amuse, Verdi’s 1851 tragedy caused one of his many rows with the censors before its Venetian premiere. Following a few minor compromises, the work triumphed locally, then internationally. The score’s most celebrated highlights – the Duke’s ‘Questa o quella’ and ‘La donna e mobile’, Gilda’s ‘Caro nome’, and the famous quartet are among the best known set- pieces in all opera. First seen in 2001, David McVicar’s production teems with life and colour and, with Tanya McCallin’s period costumes and Michael Vale’s starkly effective sets, it provides an ideal frame for Verdi’s exploration of love, emotional betrayal and the darkest revenge. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
