Verdi's Rigoletto has been reimagined in a new production for The Metropolitan Opera, directed by Bartlett Sher. Rigoletto is an opera in which the Duke of Mantua and his court jester, the titular Rigoletto, become cursed when the Duke's philandering offends the wrong person. The action is now set in 1920s Europe amid ornate Art Deco sets. Rigoletto tickets are on sale now on New York Theatre Guide. After a lauded premiere on New Year’s Eve 2021, Bartlett Sher’s Art Deco–inspired production of Verdi’s ever-popular masterpiece returns for its first revival. Baritone Quinn Kelsey and soprano Rosa Feola reprise rapturously acclaimed turns as the tragic jester Rigoletto and his headstrong daughter, Gilda, and two artists make noteworthy Met debuts: tenor Benjamin Bernheim as the promiscuous Duke of Mantua, and Maestro Speranza Scappucci on the podium. Bass Andrea Mastroni is Sparafucile, and mezzo-soprano Aigul Akhmetshina also debuts as Maddalena. Later performances feature four additional stars, with baritones Luca Salsi and Michael Chioldi, soprano Lisette Oropesa, and tenor Stephen Costello taking over as Rigoletto, Gilda, and the Duke. World premiere: Teatro La Fenice, Venice, 1851 A dramatic journey of undeniable force, Rigoletto was immensely popular from its premiere and remains fresh and powerful to this day. The story, based on a controversial play by Victor Hugo, tells of an outsider—a hunchbacked jester—who struggles to balance the dueling elements of beauty and evil that exist in his life. Written during the most fertile period of Verdi’s artistic life, the opera resonates with a universality that is frequently called Shakespearean.
Take part in the tradition and see this acclaimed revival. Back for an encore run after an acclaimed premiere, director Joel Grey's production is performed entirely in Yiddish, with English and Russian supertitles. Get tickets and hear the musical's bost beloved songs, like "If I Were a Rich Man" and "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," in a whole new way.
