Rigoletto

Superstar Luciano Pavarotti left his indelible mark on some of the greatest roles in the tenor repertoire—including Verdi’s Duke of Mantua, one of opera’s ultimate bad boys. In this performance, Pavarotti’s trademark honeyed tone and suave phrasing are paired with the innocence of June Anderson’s Gilda (in the soprano’s Met debut season and role). Leo Nucci is the tragic jester Rigoletto who sees his life and all his plans ruined.
