About the Event
Immerse yourself in Verdi's masterpiece Rigoletto and add another unforgettable experience to your stay in Venice. In the impressive atmosphere of the Palazzo Barbarigo‐Minotto, the dramatic power of the opera, interpreted by great singers and musicians, unfolds in candlelight.
Rigoletto is an intense drama of passion, betrayal, filial love and revenge. The core theme of this tragedy is the curse that triggers off the unstoppable and tragic fall of Rigoletto: “The whole subject is in that curse, that becomes even moral” (G. Verdi).
The first act of the opera is set in Tiepolo’s Room, where Anthony Knight’s wonderful costumes, inspired by 18th century styles, perfectly espouse the sumptuous baroque furniture of the Palace.
Rigoletto’s story develops through the halls of the Palace where candle lights create the backlighting effects of a Caravaggio painting, exalting the drama of the Opera.
During the interval of the performance and surrounded by the magical setting facing the Grand Canal, Musica a Palazzo offers you a glass of Prosecco, soft drinks, and fine liqueurs.
