Villa InCanto is delighted to bring their version of Rigoletto to Normansfield Theatre. Rigoletto is one of th e most important, and enduringly popular operas written by Verdi and considered to be a masterpiece, written in only 40 days.
Rigoletto’s tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court’s fool Rigoletto, and Rigoletto’s beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera’s original title, La maledizione (The Curse), refers to a curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter the Duke has seduced with Rigoletto’s encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda falls in love with the Duke and sacrifices her life to save him from assassins hired by her father.
A review by Ian Nethersell of Villa InCanto’s last production enthused about the performers and the production “the paring down, without compromise to quality and congruence drew me into the piece and I left feeling as though I had been part of it, experienced it and not just watched it”.
