Verdi
Rigoletto

The beautiful and innocent Gilda (Ekaterina Siurina) has fallen in love with the licentious Duke of Mantua (Joseph Calleja), believing him to be a poor student. Her father Rigoletto, the duke’s hunchbacked jester, has dedicated his life to keeping her from harm, and especially from his master. When Gilda is abducted and brought to the duke’s palace, Rigoletto turns to the assassin Sparafucile (Robert Lloyd) to get his revenge—but his plan goes horribly wrong, leading to Gilda’s death.
