Great Performances at the Met

SERIES INFO | DAILY SCHEDULE | PROGRAMS A-Z

Rigoletto

Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) makes his Met debut with a new production of Verdi's Rigoletto. The new staging moves the opera's tragic events from a decadent 16th-century Italian court to the glitzy, depraved setting of the Las Vegas strip circa 1960. Polish tenor Piotr Beczala sings the Duke, an amoral lounge singer whose entourage includes the world-weary comedian Rigoletto, sung by Serbian baritone Zeljko Lucic. German soprano Diana Damrau sings the role of the innocent Gilda, Rigoletto’s daughter and the victim of the predatory Duke. Michele Mariotti conducts his first company performances of the Verdi masterwork, which features one of the most famous arias in all of opera, “La donna è mobile.”
