San Francisco Opera presents Rigoletto
Rigoletto has seen it all. He’s the court jester, spinning other people’s suffering into entertainment. But behind his bitter façade, Rigoletto holds one thing sacred: the love for his daughter, Gilda. After a vengeful curse makes Gilda the target of the Duke’s dangerous obsession, will Rigoletto’s fatherly devotion be enough to save her? Music by Giuseppe Verdi | Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave Sung in Italian with English supertitles
