Closed January 18, 2018 remains a tremendously vital piece of theatre that remorselessly and subtly lays bare both the opera's moral complexity and disturbing emotional violence.

Why See Rigoletto?

Verdi's Most Famous Opera Comes To The Royal Opera House

When Italian composer Guiseppe Verdi premiered his tragic opera Rigoletto in 1851, it was said to be so well received that audience members could be heard singing it in the streets the very next morning. Considered to be the first of his operatic masterpieces, the recognisable score comes to the Royal Opera House helmed by Scottish director David McVicar.

The ultimate tale of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice, Rigoletto follows the misfortunes of its titular character. A jester in the court of the Duke of Mantua, he's extremely skilled at humiliating courtiers, much to the amusement of the Duke. Yet when his sharp tongue goes too far and the lustful Duke seduces his daughter Gilda, a spiral of revenge consumes them all.
