More Information on Rigoletto

Rigoletto is a stunning traditional production recapturing the decadence of Renaissance Italy with lavish sets and opulent costumes and featuring a magnificent golden eagle with a seven-foot wingspan and two royal greyhounds.

Starring Vladimir Dragos* and Iurie Gisca* as Rigoletto.

Verdi’s masterpiece Rigoletto is a dramatic tale of the jester’s daughter whose heart is stolen by a charming but unreliable ruler – and how her father’s attempts to prevent the love affair lead to tragedy.  The opera was almost banned because it exposed the licentious behaviour of the powers-that-be at court.

Celebrating the return of the critically acclaimed soprano Alyona Kistenyova* as Gilda and featuring the two of the most celebrated tenor arias La Donna è Mobile and Questa o Quella justly turned into classics by Caruso, Rigoletto is based on a play by Victor Hugo, who wrote Les Miserables.

Please note some scenes contain nudity.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

*Cast subject to change

“Brilliantly sung” The Times (Royal Albert Hall)

“Alyona Kistenyova made a touchingly beautiful Gilda and her arias were pure and sweet” Irish Examiner, Autumn 2014
