OVERVIEW

Love blinds Rigoletto, a cursed court jester of the lecherous Duke of Mantua. Obsessed with protecting his daughter from the man she loves and he loathes, Rigoletto’s thirst for vengeance and desperate attempt to thwart fate bring about his own tragic undoing. Jeweled with some of opera’s most beloved arias, Rigoletto contains all of the thrills and pathos known to grand opera.

Opera Omaha joins Boston Lyric Opera and The Atlanta Opera in creating this new production set in the Italian Renaissance. Fabián Veloz makes his North American debut as Rigoletto and joins a distinguished cast including soprano Rachele Gilmore, tenor Dinyar Vania, and bass Burak Bilgili.
