Opera North presents Verdi’s Rigoletto

Audio described in-house.

His difference is his curse.

In a world controlled by the privileged and powerful, Rigoletto is loathed and mocked for his difference. The only thing he lives for is his beautiful daughter Gilda, whom he hides away from a corrupt society. But when she is discovered by the predatory Duke, Rigoletto sets out on a path of vengeance from which there is no return.

Verdi’s dramatic masterpiece contains some of his most passionate music including the instantly recognisable ‘La donna è mobile’. Leading UK theatre artist, Femi Elufowoju Jr. directs this exciting new production with a fantastic cast including Sir Willard White.
