Notes & Reviews:

"The Duke must of necessity be a lecher" - with these words Verdi opposed the police censorship of his Rigoletto. For the then government the dissipated and unscrupulous life at court was portrayed too realistically in the opera, so that only after considerable revision was Rigoletto finally premiered in Venice in 1851. Verdi drew his scenario from Victor Hugo's tragedy Le roi s'amuse, the name Rigoletto being a variation of the French rigoleur (jester).
