About the Event
Verdi's Rigoletto will be performed by six singers in costumes, accompanied by piano, in the intimate setting of St. Mark's English Church.
Rigoletto, the tragic story of the hunchbacked jester of the Duke of Mantua, was performed the first time in Venice at the famous Teatro 'La Fenice' on March 11, 1851. Rigoletto tries to hide his beautiful daughter Gilda from the advances of the Duke. He is cursed by Count Monterone and plans to kill the Duke with the help of the assassin Sparafucile.
