“La donna è mobile
qual piuma al vento,
muta d’accento ~ e di pensier”

(The Duke of Mantua, Act III)

“Il Rigoletto”, a melodrama by Giuseppe Verdi, whose libretto was written by Francesco Maria Piave, will be performed at Teatro dell’Opera from the 2nd to the 18th December, 2018.

The caustic and deformed court jester and his daughter Gilda are the protagonists of one of the most beloved “Bel Canto” operas, part of the famous trilogy by the Emilian composer together with “La Traviata” and “Il Trovatore”.
The opera, set in Mantua in the Sixteenth century, is inspired by “Le roi s’amuse”, a three-act drama by Victor Hugo.
It takes place within a few days and has a classic dramatic lyric finale: death.

Gilda and Rigoletto are two completely different characters, such as the sun and the moon, darkness and light, ambiguity and beauty.
They are the interpreters of a tragedy that strikes the hearts of the audience who cannot avoid being involved in the torment of the father and in the sentimental idealization of the daughter.
