Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave

The deformed court jester Rigoletto is famous for mocking the husbands of the women the Duke has seduced. When Rigoletto's own daughter, whom he has kept carefully hidden, falls victim, he vows to have revenge. But repaying evil with evil goes horribly wrong, and Rigoletto learns that he has reaped what he has sown. This first work of Verdi's maturity began a series of masterpieces that would come to define Italian grand opera. Rigoletto has continued to fascinate and thrill audiences for more than 150 years.

Outstanding American baritone Mark Walters returns to FGO in the title role. Fresh from his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, tenor Michael Fabiano appears as the Duke with, as his victim Gilda, the award-winning soprano Nadine Sierra.
