CharlottesvilleOpera Rigoletto



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: Charlottesville Opera
Description: Charlottesville Opera presents Rigoletto at the Paramount Theatre July 14, 16, and 19.

One of the greatest works in the operatic canon, Rigoletto tells the tragedy of a father whose fervent attempts to protect his daughter from the dangers of the world cause her ruin. Featuring several incredibly popular arias, Verdi’s depiction of the machinations and scandals of a sixteenth century Italian court remains haunting and all-too-relevant today. For the second consecutive year, Charlottesville Opera will also bring a performance of its mainstage opera to the beautiful Anne and Ellen Fife Theatre at Virginia Tech on July 8.

The cast stars fan-favorite Hyung Yun (Metropolitan Opera) as the title character. Yun was most recently seen with Charlottesville Opera as Germont in La Traviata (2016), co-produced with The Oratorio Society of Virginia, and as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly (2015). He will be joined by Ashley Emerson (Metropolitan Opera), praised by Opera News for her “musical energy, immaculate technique and physical grace”, as Rigoletto’s beloved daughter Gilda, and Matthew Vickers (Virginia Opera) as the caddish Duke of Mantua.
