Rigoletto presented by Calgary Opera
April 6, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm MDT
The hunchback Rigoletto, a court jester to the libertine Duke of Mantua, is cursed by the father of one of the Duke’s victims for his mocking behaviour. When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s naïve daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect, and Rigoletto becomes obsessed with revenge. His plot goes terribly awry when his beloved Gilda loses her life in Rigoletto’s misguided efforts
to settle the score with the evil Duke.
