Description

Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage. One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of 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." Directed and designed by Philipp Stölzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.
