RIGOLETTO Will Be Performed at Prague State Opera This Week

Together with La traviata and Il trovatore, Rigoletto (1851) is an opera that made Verdi famous worldwide. Verdi's splendid melodies and the masterful depiction of the lead characters still enchant opera-lovers around the world.

Rigoletto´s beautiful daughter Gilda falls victim to her father's promiscuous master, the Duke of Mantua. The genesis of the work, written for the Teatro La Fenice, was quite dramatic in itself. The Venice police intervened and subjected the original version to censorship, claiming that the theme was "tastelessly immoral" and "offensive to His Royal Majesty".

Performing:

Soloists of the State Opera
State Opera Orchestra
State Opera Chorus

The performance will take place on October 8. Learn more at https://www.pragueticketoffice.com/event/1114244-rigoletto/2021-10-08-19-00/.
