Rigoletto Virginia Opera
Rigoletto is the relentlessly dark story of a wicked nobleman, a cunning court jester, and a naive girl caught up in a shadowy world and a curse that haunts them all. A tangled tale of love with the threat of death at every turn, Rigoletto hurtles toward a conclusion that counts redemption its last concern and, ultimately, its lost cause. Verdi’s classic explores the underbelly of a bygone underworld where corruption holds little punishment, and innocence no reward.
