Opera Las Vegas: Verdi's Rigoletto


Jun. 9, 2017, 7:30pm

Campus Location


Tragic forces shape this world-famous tale of a father’s love, a Duke’s debauchery, an Italian court’s collective deception and a deeply personal thirst for brutal revenge. The fates of the hunch-backed jester and a libidinous royal philanderer collide in Giuseppe Verdi’s stunning masterpiece of passion and vengeance. Featuring some of opera’s most famous melodies, Rigoletto is the story of a daughter abducted, a father outraged, and a potent curse fulfilled. Michael Chioldi, internationally-renowned for his portrayal of the title character, heads an all-star cast and full orchestra under the musical directon of the Metropolitan Opera’s Gregory Buchalter.

Rigoletto is also being performed on Sunday, June 11 at 2 p.m.



Section I: $95, Section II: $75

Discounts are available for seniors, members of the military, the differently abled, and all students.
