The court jester Rigoletto insults and humiliates all those around him for the amusement of his boss, the Duke of Mantua. But eventually those words come back to haunt him, setting him and his innocent, love-struck daughter Gilda on a course for disaster. You will immediately recognize the parade of hit tunes from Gilda's "Caro nome" to the Duke's "La donna e mobile" and to the thrilling final quartet. At the heart of the story though is Rigoletto himself, a tragic title character worthy of Shakespeare, a case study that proves that nothing good ever comes from hate and a never-ending thirst for revenge.
