Rigoletto Editor's Pick

Rigoletto

This humdinger of an opera has everything

At the Duke’s infamous parties, one man’s words light the darkness with a sinister glitter. Among the glamorous girls and greasy gangsters, Rigoletto serves his master with sharp wits and averted eyes. He’s hideous. He’s hated. He’s untouchable. But in this shimmering world of secrets and seduction, can he keep the one he loves most safe? From the moment he wrote it, Verdi knew he had a hit on his hands. The story had everything: royalty, loyalty, deformity, devotion, lust and revenge. And the music? The music was sensational, so full of hummable tunes that Verdi demanded complete secrecy from his première cast. The tenor was forbidden from even whistling the catchy ‘La donna è mobile’ outside of rehearsals. The morning after Rigoletto’s triumphant premiere, that melody rang out in the streets: a hit for ever after. The title character Verdi called the “greatest creation” in the history of theatre had found a home in a masterpiece of music. Opera Australia’s much-loved production of Rigoletto returns to the Sydney Opera House stage, complete with its glamorous La Dolce Vita-inspired sets and costumes and scene-stealing car.The revolving dolls-house style set gives a cinematic detail to each scene.

Aida Editor's Pick

Aida

This historic epic is a perennial favourite

Verdi’s monumental, transcendent music makes this historic epic a perennial favourite. The new production comes from the celebrated Italian director Davide Livermore. He is renowned for high-tech, projected sets so tangible, it’s hard to believe they are just light and shadow. Immersive, impressive, intimate — this is the future of spectacle on stage. Thrilling young conductor Andrea Battistoni returns to lead this production. Three magnificent casts perform Verdi’s difficult leads. You don’t want to miss the stunning soprano of Amber Wagner, paired with Elena Gabouri as Amneris and Riccardo Massi as Radamès. Later in the season, rising star Natalie Aroyan takes on her dream role, and Clémentine Margaine, Milijana Nikolic, Diego Torre and Yonghoon Lee join the all-star lineup.
