One of opera's most vivid and compelling characters, a vengeful court jester, desperately tries to protect his daughter from a lascivious duke in this heart-wrenching tragedy. Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts a superb cast: Portraying the hunchbacked court jester the "arrestingly dark and charismatic" Marco Vratogna (San Francisco Chronicle); appearing as Rigoletto's innocent daughter Gilda is Albina Shagimuratova, whose "radiant soprano dispatches the gorgeous lines and elaborate ornamentation with agility and flair, glistening in her top notes" (The Houston Chronicle); and singing the lecherous Duke is David Lomel, whose "sound is sweet and penetrating...and golden-toned" (The New York Times).
Prior to the performance join fellow Lehigh alumni for a casual no-host dinner and drinks at O3 Bistro and Lounge located at 524 Van Ness Avenue.
Schedule of Events:
• 5pm -- Casual no-host gathering at O3 Bistro and Lounge (524 Van Ness Avenue)
• 7pm -- Walk to the Opera house together
• 7:30pm -- Curtain up for Rigoletto!
