Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece - compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful - is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage. Once of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame. It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement "Cortigiani, vil razza dannata," Gilda's dreamy "Caro nome" and the Duke's instantly recognisable "La donna e mobile." Directed and designed by Philip Stolzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.
