Captured Live at the Royal Opera House in London, England. Directed by David McVicar Starring Dimitri Plantanias, Ekaterina Siurina, Vittorio Grigolo, and Christine Rice. One of Verdi's most popular operas, Rigoletto is a wonderful combination of musical and dramatic power. David McVicar's production for The Royal Opera has become a favorite, with its strong characterizations and vivid scenes. McVicar's production perfectly combines the colorful and corrupt world of the 16th-century court in Mantua with the opera's dark and violent themes, which remain just as potent today as ever. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
