Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece - compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful - is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage.
Once of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame. It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement "Cortigiani, vil razza dannata," Gilda's dreamy "Caro nome" and the Duke's instantly recognisable "La donna è mobile."
Directed and designed by Philip Stölzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.
Rigoletto on the Lake contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
