Jonathan Miller
Internationally renowned baritone Alan Opie reprises his role as Rigoletto. In this triumphant updating, Mafia-controlled Little Italy, New York, provides the backdrop to a tale of lust, deceit and retribution. Leading British tenor Peter Auty and the mesmerising Judith Howarth join Opie, while the talented young conductor Alexander Briger takes on the intensely melodic score.
