Notes & Reviews:

One of Opera Australia's best-loved productions, Elijah Moshinsky's retelling of Rigoletto draws Verdi's dark melodrama into a modern-day Mafioso underworld inspired by Federico Fellini's all-time classic La Dolce Vita. Heading a glittering international cast is baritone Alan Opie in a commanding performance as the tortured jester, with Emma Matthews taking on the role of Gilda and Paul O'Neill as the lustful Duke. Conductor Giovanni Reggioli masterfully captures the luscious yet fragile tones of Verdi's much-loved score, with its feast of sublime singing. A classic opera for purists and first-timers alike! Recorded 2010, Sydney Opera House.
