One of Verdi's most highly acclaimed operas, both musically and theatrically, Verdi dashed off Rigoletto in just 40 days. It's a simple story of boys behaving badly and an innocent girl caught in the middle with a tragic, outcome. The opera has some of the most beautiful music ever written, with caro nome and la donna e mobile ranking among the most beloved arias in all of grand opera.
Annapolis Opera's fully staged production of Rigoletto will showcase a stellar cast of professional opera singers. They will be accompanied by the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Ron Gretz.
