A tragic story of envy, vengeance and sacrifice, Rigoletto sees one of Verdi’s most popular operas relocated to New York’s ‘Mafia’ Little Italy in the 1950s.

Reviving Jonathan Miller’s much-loved interpretation of the story, Rigoletto follows the eponymous character with a sharp tongue and no shortage of wit.

But when his wisecracks spark a poisonous vendetta, and his daughter is seduced by the dissolute Duke, Rigoletto sets out for revenge – will he have the last laugh?

With some of opera’s most immediately recognisable music including ‘Women abandon us’, Verdi’s thrilling score is conducted by Sir Richard Armstrong.

With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
