Notes & Reviews:

Jean-Pierre Ponnelle's authentic rendering of Verdi's 'Rigoletto' captures all the tenderness and tragedy of Verdi's heart-breaking drama. This production was filmed on location in 1981 in Italian Renaissance landmarks including the Castello di San Giorgio in Mantua, the Piazza Duomo in Cremona, and the Teatro Farnese in Parma. Luciano Pavarotti sings the role of the Duke of Mantua, a part in which he was arguably unsurpassed, and features the famous aria "La donna e mobile." "Not to be missed." -The New York Times
