Rigoletto

Opera by Giuseppe Verdi

The fool in Nikolaus Lehnhoff’s production of »Rigoletto« is clad in poisonous green, and equally toxic is his mockery of the gaggle of courtiers around the Duke of Mantua. But emotionally the fool is a mess, constantly worried about his daughter Gilda, whom he jealously shields from the clutches of the Duke, an infamous rake. When Gilda nevertheless falls victim to the Duke, Rigoletto swears bloody vengeance. But the plan backfires … The hugely successful premiere of »Rigoletto« took place at the Teatro La Fenice in 1851. Giuseppe Verdi created a score which he himself described as »revolutionary« in its ground-breaking musical and dramatic intensity. The end result is a deeply shocking work, and perhaps the best opera by the great Italian.
