Rigoletto: Ellen Kent and Opera & Ballet International
Opera and Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra - Verdi's Rigoletto, the masterpiece they tried to ban.
Featuring a magnificent golden eagle with a seven-foot wingspan and two royal greyhounds.
A stunning traditional production recapturing the decadence of Renaissance Italy with lavish sets and opulent costumes.
Verdi’s masterpiece Rigoletto is a dramatic tale of the jester’s daughter whose heart is stolen by a charming but unreliable ruler – and how her father’s attempts to prevent the love affair lead to tragedy.
The opera was almost banned because it exposed the licentious behaviour of the powers-that-be at court. Featuring the two of the most celebrated tenor arias La Donna e Mobile and Questa o Quella justly turned into classics by Caruso, Rigoletto is based on a play by Victor Hugo, who wrote Les Miserables.
Please note some scenes contain nudity.
