RigolettoOpera by Giuseppe VerdiIn Italian language with German surtitles Opera by Giuseppe Verdi In italienischer Sprache mit deutschen Übertiteln
Verdi’s 17th opera paved the way for the composer’s breakthrough to world fame, along with his two other works within his “popular trilogy”, “Il trovatore and La traviata”.
The melodies tell a gripping story of how a father’s protective love and a daughter’s first great love ultimately prove fatal. They both uncover a deception, the father orders for his daughter’s seducer to be killed. The daughter, intending to warn the Duke, is struck by the blade which is supposed to avenge her honour.
