Why See Dayton Opera - Rigoletto?

A sinister tragedy

An electrifying whirlwind of revenge, Verdi's Rigoletto is a must see for all opera-goers, be they seasoned or beginners. Blazing and intense, it tells the story of a curse thrown by a grieving father and the far-reaching influence of paranoia and envy as the title character fights to protect his beloved daughter. Combined with a dazzling score that reflects the white-hot heat of its passionate characters, don't miss this unforgettable production, presented by the Dayton Opera.

What is the story of Rigoletto?

The ultimate tale of jealousy, vengeance and sacrifice, Rigoletto follows the misfortunes of its titular character. A clown in the court of the Duke of Mantua, he's extremely skilled at humiliating courtiers, much to the amusement of the Duke. Yet, when his sharp tongue goes too far and the lustful Duke seduces his daughter Gilda, a spiral of devastation threatens to consume them all in a fiery and heart-stopping finale.
