Giuseppe Verdi: Rigoletto

Budapest, Margitszigeti Szabadtéri Színpad, 3rd and 5th of August 2018, 20.00.
The intricate story of Rigoletto is full of Baroque contradictions as it moves along to its inevitably dark conclusion. What may be Verdi’s most popular opera uses immersive musicality to tell a story of doubt and self-sacrifice through a magnificent performance, which is the second major opera premiere of the Budapest Summer Festival this season.
This is one of the favourite performances of opera lovers everywhere with a title role that will pose a great challenge for Giuseppe Altomare, the Italian baritone who will make his debut for the Hungarian audience, while the role of the seductive Duke of Mantova will be played by one of the most important and exciting tenors of our era, the Mexican singer Arturo Chacón-Cruz.
