Verdi's Rigoletto on the Lake

Monday, February 10th at 7:30
$12 Members | $17 Public

Giuseppe Verdi’s masterwork – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the breathtaking water stage of Lake Constance, Bregenz. One of Verdi’s most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father’s rage and a daughter’s shame. It features several of opera’s best-known arias-including Rigoletto’s passionate denouncement “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,” Gilda’s dreamy “Caro nome” and the Duke’s instantly recognizable “La donna è mobile. Featuring Bulgarian baritone Vladimir Stoyanov as Rigoletto, French soprano Mélissa Petit as Gilda, and American tenor Stephen Costello as the Duke of Mantua. (140 Mins, incl. 15 min intermission)
