WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SEE RIGOLETTO AT THE VICTORIA THEATRE HALIFAX
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House is bringing Verdi’s classic opera Rigoletto to the Victoria Theatre, Halifax on February 28, 2015. Rigoletto is based on a play by Victor Hugo, Le Roi s‘amuse, written by Giuseppe Verdi and his librettist Francesco Maria Piave and performed at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice during the 1850-1851 season.
Verdi’s Rigoletto is widely considered to be his first great operatic masterpiece. A succession of stunning tunes, including the famous La donna è mobile, combined with an ever-present underlying tension and menace in a plot involving abduction, seduction and a hired assassin.
One of Verdi’s most popular operas tells the story of fatherly love, loss and revenge that goes tragically wrong. Its story revolves around the hunch-backed court jester, Rigoletto, his beautiful daughter Gilda and the womanising Duke of Mantua.
