Metropolitan Opera: Rigoletto - Opera

Verdi's towering tragedy returns to the Met.

Story

Dmitri Hvorostovsky sings the title role of Verdi’s tragic masterpiece for the first time at the Met in Michael Mayer’s dazzling production set in Las Vegas—the neon-bedecked hit of the 2012–13 season. Aleksandra Kurzak is the beautiful Gilda, in thrall to Matthew Polenzani’s womanizing Duke.
