After their critically acclaimed productions of Madam Butterfly, Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, 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”.
Outstanding Australian baritone James Clayton will return to NZ to play ‘Rigoletto’, joining tenor Boyd Owen as ‘The Duke’ and soprano Hannah Catrin Jones as ‘Gilda’, who are both returning to Eternity Opera after their stunning portrayals in last year’s Madam Butterfly.
Performed in English this will again be directed by Alex Galvin and conducted by Matthew Ross, with support from the Eternity Chamber Orchestra.
