Runs 18 October – 24 November 2018

Scottish Opera’s 2018/19 Season begins in October with Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto, a revival of the 2011 production by award-winning director Matthew Richardson and designer Jon Morrell.

Opening at Theatre Royal Glasgow on October 18, the production tours to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Inverness.  This tragic tale of seduction and revenge, set in a dark and dangerous underworld where cruelty is rife and women are treated as playthings, tells the story of Rigoletto’s suffocating love for his daughter, Gilda.

Verdi’s 1851 masterpiece, which premiered at La Fenice in Venice, is packed with some of the best-loved music in opera, including the moving Act III quartet and ‘La donne è mobile’, in which the libertine Duke of Mantua sings of his casual disregard for women.
