An OPERA FOR ALL
After their critically acclaimed productions of Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro and last year’s Madam Butterfly, Eternity Opera is returning in August with Verdi’s 1851 dramatic masterpiece Rigoletto.
Rigoletto, a disfigured court jester seeks vengeance for his own humiliation, and for his daughter who has fallen victim to the Duke of Mantua. Rigoletto is out for revenge. But he definitely won’t have the last laugh. A tragic story of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice, Rigoletto is one of Verdi’s most popular operas. It features some of opera’s most immediately famous music, including ‘La donna è mobile’, ‘Questa o quella’ and ‘Caro nome’.
"Eternity Opera’s production was first rate – professional, accomplished and earnest. The cast and orchestra were excellent and four leads were exceptional. It deserved its standing ovation." Stephen Gibbs, DMS Review
