Theatre Visit: RIGOLETTO (Verdi) – Opera North
January 29 @ 19:00
In a world controlled by the privileged and powerful, Rigoletto is loathed and mocked for his difference. The only thing he lives for is his beautiful daughter Gilda, whom he hides away from a corrupt society. But when she is discovered by the predatory Duke, Rigoletto sets out on a path of vengeance from which there is no return. This brand-new production is directed by leading UK theatre artist, Femi Elufowoju Jr. With its much-loved arias including ‘La donna e mobile’, this production updates the drama to racial tension and kidnapping in a modern-day setting, and is sure to be hairs on the back of your neck gripping!
Sung in Italian with English titles – Running time: approximately 2 hours 30 minutes
