Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto Sung in Italian with projected English translation February 7, 2014 - 7:30 p.m. | February 9, 2014 - 2:00 p.m. Rigoletto, jester to the Duke of Mantua, is both reviled and respected for his razor-sharp, bitter wit. His only joy is his daughter, Gilda, whom he has hidden from his amoral employer's court. But Rigoletto cannot protect her from falling in love. When the Duke poses as a young student and adds Gilda to his long list of conquests, the jester swears revenge. Passion drives him to plot the Duke's murder but, naïve and blinded by love, Gilda spoils her father's scheme with heart- wrenching results.
