Opera Holland Park 2020 Season
The devil has the best tunes in Verdi’s scalding exposé of unchecked power, ruined innocence and revenge.
Cursed by nature and despised by society, the jester Rigoletto’s only love is his daughter, Gilda. But when Gilda falls in love with Rigoletto’s master, the ruthless Duke of Mantua, the corruption of court life escalates and Gilda is abducted. Humiliated and disgraced, Rigoletto hires an assassin.
Featuring some of opera’s greatest arias, including ‘La donna e mobile’ and ‘Caro nome’, Rigoletto is an intense psychological portrait of a man trapped by his obsessions, for which he and Gilda pay a devastating price.
