Rigoletto is an opera by the Italian genius Giuseppe Verdi, which based on the play “Le roi s’amuse” by Victor Hugo. The work was Verdi’s first international triumph and ranks among the most frequently performed operas in the world. A tragic story of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice.

 

The protagonist of the tragic story is a hunchbacked court jester who encourages his master, the Duke of Mantua, to indulge in a licentious and lustful life until his own daughter, Gilda, falls victim to the Duke’s seduction. Rigoletto’s plot to have his master murdered backfires and results in Gilda’s death. Verdi imbued this work with enchanting melodies, strong dramatic situations, powerful characterization and intense emotions.
