In a world of decadence and corruption, Verdi's masterpiece sets power against innocence, with devastating results.

This tragic story of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto's daughter Gilda. After the Duke has fallen in love with the already maried daughter of a courtier, Rigoletto encourages him to seduce her. But this wisecrack starts off a vendetta and leads to a curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto. And then, the Duke turns his attention to Rigoletto's daughter. The jester is out for revenge, but he definitely won't have the last laugh.

Enjoy one of Verdi's most popular operas, which was followed by Il Trovatore and La Traviata, placed in contemporary setting by Royal Opera director Oliver Mears.
