With a stellar cast led by Piotr Beczała as the lecherous Duke and Željko Lučić as the tragic clown of the title, Verdi’s tale of lust, seduction, and ill-fated paternal love comes to thrilling life. Sensational newcomer Nadine Sierra is Gilda, Rigoletto’s innocent daughter, and Dimitry Ivashchenko as Sparafucile and Nancy Fabiola Herrera as Maddalena co-star. Roberto Abbado conducts.
