Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher creates a bold new take on Verdi’s timeless tragedy, resetting the opera’s action in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber. Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczala as the Duke of Mantua, with leading maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium.
Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM. The lecture for Rigoletto will be conducted by Attorney and host of WTJU’s Sunday Opera Matinee, Tim Snider.
