The Met’s new production of Verdi’s opera sees the story of the licentious Duke of Mantua, his court jester Rigoletto and Rigoletto's daughter Gilda moved to 1920’s Art Deco Europe.

The Met rings in the New Year with the gala premiere of a bold new take on Verdi’s timeless tragedy from Bartlett Sher. The Tony Award winning director resets the opera’s action in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber, themselves boasting a combined eight Tony Awards.

Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczała as the Duke of Mantua, with leading maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium.

Rigoletto is sung in Italian with English subtitles.

A screening of the broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera 2021-22 Season in New York.

Please Note: the dates of Metropolitan Opera productions may be subject to change.

Duration 3 hours 25 minutes, including 2 intervals.
