Giuseppe Verdi's masterwork -- compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful -- is being performed for the first time on the breathtaking water stage of Lake Constance, Bregenz. One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame. It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement 'Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,' Gilda's dreamy 'Caro nome' and the Duke's instantly recognizable 'La donna A mobile.' Rigoletto was first performed in 1851 and is the first of the extraordinary 'middle-period' trio of Verdi masterpieces that also includes La Traviata and Il Trovatore. Directed and designed by Philipp Stolzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance, Bregenz.
