  • David McVicar's critically-acclaimed production of Rigoletto returns to the Royal Opera House this Winter.

    Rigoletto, a court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect...

    Giuseppe Verdi wrote in 1855 that Rigoletto, based on Victor Hugo’s play Le Roi s'amuse, was his ‘best opera’. He had to overcome state censorship to stage it – the censors objected to its depiction of an immoral ruler – but he was vindicated by the premiere's huge success in 1851. Rigoletto was performed 250 times in the next 10 years and has remained one of the most popular of all operas.

    David McVicar's production highlights the cruelty and degeneracy at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in brutal orgies and revelries to Verdi's spirited dances. Musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the quartet in Act III that weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.

    At London's Royal Opera House from 14 December 2017 - 16 January 2018, book your Rigoletto tickets today!
