Rigoletto

Rigoletto

Direction: Pierre Audi
Stage design: Christof Hetzer

Rigoletto, the first work of Verdi‘s „trilogia popolare“, was a resounding success right from the start. First performed in Venice in 1851, it highlights the composer’s dominant themes: a pivotal relationship between father and daughter, the inexorability of fate, love, revenge and sacrifice, as well as a close look at the suffering of a social outcast.
Rigoletto continually features in international repertoires, and has been performed around 700 times to date at the Wiener Staatsoper alone. After a break of more than 30 years – the last première of the opera was in 1983 – the opera house on the Ring is now launching a new production of Rigoletto.
