Opera North’s Rigoletto

Saturday 22 January - Saturday 19 February 2022

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 melody of the Duke’s song La donna è mobile. Leading UK theatre artist, Femi Elufowoju Jr. directs this new production that maps identity and inequality onto a contemporary canvas to powerful effect.
