Rigoletto, an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, will be performed at Tianjin Grand Theatre on 10th July, 2013.
The four-act Rigoletto was completed in 1851 and premiered in Venice that same year with a libretto based on Victor Hugo’s Le roi s’amuse adapted by Francesco Maria Piave.
Effective in both dramatic content and musical treatment, the work has remained in repertory ever since. Verdi captured the musical essence of Rigoletto’s many moods, of the Duke’s flirtatious nature and of Gilda’s innocent, angelic character. Many of its arias have become popular “hits” in their own right, including Rigoletto’s aria “La donna è mobile” and the famous quartet (Duke, Maddalena, Gilda, Rigoletto) in the final act.
