Hugely popular ever since its Venice premiere, Verdi’s tense and brutal tale of a deformed court jester caught in a web of corruption, lechery, and revenge runs the full emotional gamut in true operatic fashion. The iconic melodrama boasts an action-packed plot, memorably complex characters, and a hit parade of brilliant music.

Baritone Marco Vratogna is the cursed title character of this tragic Verdi opera, with soprano Nadine Sierra singing the role of Rigoletto’s daughter, Gilda, who falls victim to devious plots.
Last seen on the Seattle Opera stage in 2004, this production of Rigoletto is set in the 1930s and features stunning period costumes.
The court jester Rigoletto tries to protect his beautiful daughter from the seductive grasp of the Duke of Mantua, but is faced with a curse that threatens them all.
