Miami Lyric Opera masterfully performs the classic work that defined Italian opera, Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto, at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center.
Famous for mocking the husbands of the women the Duke has seduced, a deformed court jester, Rigoletto, finds himself in the same ill-fated predicament. When Rigoletto’s own daughter, whom he has kept carefully hidden, falls victim, he vows to have revenge. But repaying evil with evil goes horribly wrong, and Rigoletto learns that he has reaped what he has sown.
The performance takes place in four acts and is performed in Italian with English supertitles.
Cast includes Nelson Martinez, Gina Galati, Jorge Pita Carreras, Emilia Acon and Diego Baner; MLO Orchestra and Chorus with Chorus Master Pablo Hernandez and Conductor Doris Lang Kosloff; General and Artistic Director is Raffaele Cardone.
