Rigoletto
Pittsburgh Opera

A painted on smile can mask so much...the court jester Rigoletto loves his daughter Gilda nearly as much as he hates the Duke of Mantua. The Duke steals Gilda's honor, and the jester must continue to joke, even as he plans revenge. Like most comedians, Rigoletto sometimes takes a joke too far. But, this being opera, Rigoletto is met not by boos, but by a curse, when one of his jokes gets a little too personal. And when he realizes that his daughter has captured the eye of the Duke, Rigoletto leads us on a whirlwind of rage, revenge, and ultimately a tragic death.

Sung in Italian with English texts projected above the stage.

Estimated running time: Two hours and 30 minutes with two intermissions.
