There is no need to present one of the most famous works by the great Italian Master to an opera visitor. Victor Hugo’s drama Le roi s’amuse was an ideal story for Verdi, full of huge passions, critical view on the society and touching personal line. Rigoletto, the leading character, a court’s jester alias minion of the noblemen, has got a dilemma: to survive with no harm in a shameful environment, to ignore the consequences of his own behaviour, or to protest as Count Monterone did? Because one has to pay a price for each action in life, and sometimes the price is really high, loosing the most precious we have, in this story his beloved daughter Gilda.

Running time: 2 hrs 40 mins with two intervals
