by Giuseppe Verdi, in English

Saturdays and Sundays - JULY 16th and 23rd AT 7:00 and JULY 17th and 24th AT 2:00 

"Rigoletto" is arguably, one of Verdi's most popular operas. Karma's a b*#+h and the jester Rigoletto finds out the hard way! Gorgeous singing, intrigue, assassins, politically (and morally) incorrect treatment of women, fate, true love, missed redemption and a curse all play their parts in this dramatic story. There is something in it for everyone -- an evening not to be missed!

The DVO is proud to present RIGOLETTO by G Verdi in English.
