The corruption of innocence is at the heart of Verdi’s potent tragedy in David McVicar’s production for The Royal Opera.

Rigoletto, court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his irreverent laughter.  When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect…

David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua.  Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances.  The opera’s many musical highlights include the ebullient ‘La donna è mobile’, in which the Duke boasts of his disregard for women; Gilda’s exquisite, plangent duets with Rigoletto and the Duke; and the gorgeous Act III quartet that beautifully weaves the voices together as the story quickens to its shattering conclusion.
