Giuseppe Verdi: Rigoletto
Summer encore on Wednesday, September 9th at 7 pm (original live broadcast 16.2.2013).
Director Michael Mayer reimagines Verdi’s towering tragedy in Las Vegas in 1960—an ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. In this production, inspired by the antics of the Rat Pack, tenor Piotr Beczała is the womanizing Duke, with baritone Željko Lucic as his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto. Soprano Diana Damrau is Rigoletto’s daughter—and their victim.
Duration of the opera approx. 2 h 30 min, incl. one intermission (10 min).
