Notes & Reviews:
'Rigoletto' is simply wonderful entertainment. It is uncanny to listen to the opening ten minutes or so and recognize a dozen superb tunes. It is also much more - a daring attack on aristocratic privilege, a tender love story, and an impassioned appeal on behalf of the disadvantaged, all set to music of such wealth and beauty that, with its sister operas 'La Traviata' and 'Il Travatore', it has almost defined Italian opera for 150 years.
