NBR New Zealand Opera's Rigoletto in Auckland
Opera doesn't get more melodramatic than Rigoletto, Verdi's heartbreaking tale of love and deception. Amid of flow of glorious melody, it features the celebrated aria "la donna è mobile", one of the most recognisable tunes in all opera.
Lindy Hume, whose 2007 Lucia di Lammermoor so thrilled its audiences, returns to New Zealand to direct this new production. The NBR New Zealand Opera's Director of Music, Wyn Davies, conducts a stellar cast, including Warwick Fyfe in the title role, Emma Pearson as his daughter Gilda and Rafael Rojas as the cynical womaniser, the Duke of Mantua.
