      Musica a Palazzo: Rigoletto

      Rigoletto is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, on a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It was first performed at La Fenice Theatre in Venice on March 11th, 1851.

      It is an intense drama of passion, betrayal, filial love and revenge. The core theme of this tragedy is the curse that triggers off the unstoppable and tragic fall of Rigoletto: “The whole subject is in that curse, that becomes even moral” (G. Verdi).

      The first act of the opera is set in Tiepolo’s Room, where Anthony Knight’s wonderful costumes, inspired by 18th century styles, perfectly espouse the sumptuous baroque furniture of the Palace.

      Rigoletto’s story develops through the halls of the Palace where candle lights create the backlighting effects of a Caravaggio painting, exalting the drama of the Opera.
