War Memorial Opera House
455 Franklin St., San Francisco, CA 94102
Boasting two of opera's all-time favorite arias ("Questa o quella" and "La donna è mobile"), Giuseppe Verdi's "Rigoletto" also spotlights one of opera's most complex title characters. This tragic story of the curse laid upon court jester Rigoletto, his daughter Gilda and the lecherous duke he serves is based on a play by Victor Hugo. Will Rigoletto's fatherly devotion be enough to save his beloved daughter from the duke's dangerous obsession? You won't want to miss seeing San Francisco Opera's skilled singers bring all of the emotional and musical power of "Rigoletto" to the stage of the War Memorial Opera House.
