The love between a deformed and ridiculed court jester, Rigoletto, and his daughter Gilda, is pushed to the limit in Verdi’s dark tale of betrayal and vengeance.

In honor of Verdi’s bicentennial, director Enrico Castiglione sends the audience on a dramatic journey of passionate love and sacrifice, set on the stunningly beautiful open-air stage in Taormina, Sicily. With a score much loved for such arias as ‘La donna e mobile’ sung by the womanizing Duke and the virtuosic ‘Caro nome’ performed by the innocent Gilda, Rigoletto is considered one of the greatest operatic masterpieces.

Performed in Taormina, Italy
