Rigoletto

Birmingham Hippodrome, Hurst Street, BIRMINGHAM, West Midlands, B5 4TB
Rigoletto

About

The Duke can have any woman he wants, and lives a life of frivolity and corruption. Rigoletto, the Duke's jester, ridicules the fathers and husbands of the women the Duke flirts with, who then set about seeking their vengeance against him. But Rigoletto has his own daughter's honour to protect, and events unfold with unintended consequences.

Verdi wrote that Rigoletto was his best opera, and with its dramatic storyline and score – featuring the instantly recognisable La donna è mobile – it's easy to see why it continues to be such an enduring favourite. This timely revival of WNO's acclaimed production is set in the White House during the Kennedy era, and sees Mark S Doss (Tosca, Spring 2018) return to the Company in the title role.
