"Rigoletto" is arguably, one of Verdi's most popular operas. Karma's a b*#+h and the jester Rigoletto finds out the hard way! Gorgeous singing, intrigue, assassins, politically (and morally) incorrect treatment of women, fate, true love, missed redemption and a curse all play their parts in this dramatic story. There is something in it for everyone -- an evening not to be missed!
Delaware Valley Opera proudly presents a stellar cast, headed by tenor Tshombe Selby (Chicago’s Lyric Opera, Metropolitan Opera Chorus) as the Duke of Mantua and baritone Mark Cotton (Opera West in Santa Fe, Opera Classica Europa, Miami Lyric Opera) as Rigoletto. The lovely Gilda is played by Kelsey Watts (Binghamton University Symphony Orchestra, Binghamton Philharmonic, Tri-Cities Opera) and the stately Count Monterone is played by Jonathan Stinson (Cleveland Opera, Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Cincinnati Opera, as well as engagements overseas in the U.K. and Bulgaria), who just thrilled DVO audiences as The Pirate King in June’s production of The Pirates of Penzance. Carol Castel, Artistic Director of DVO, is Stage Director, with Music Direction by Matthew Rupcich. SEE THE CAST HERE!
