Melodramma in 3 acts by Giuseppe Verdi.Sung in Italian with English and French surtitles.Giuseppe Verdi knew that by choosing a libretto based on Victor Hugo's Le Roi s'amuse, he would be working with a rich and colourful subject matter. It also gave him the opportunity to make the musical portrait of one of the most charismatic figures in the history of opera. Rigoletto is the misshapen jester at the court of the Duke of Mantua and the father of Gilda, whom he cherishes more than any living thing. Despite the appalling nature of his acts, this modern hero, which Robert Carsen portrays as a clown straight out of the circus, also moves the audience with his deeper yearnings. When an ancient curse catches up with him, the hunchbacked jester that helps the Duke abduct young women is caught in his own trap, becoming both executioner and victim.
