‘Rigoletto’ at Met Opera

Metropolitan Opera

30 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023

In a daring and generally successful rethinking of Verdi’s tragedy, Michael Mayer has set the action in a Las Vegas casino in 1960.  The rat-pack Rigoletto set decoration and costuming is worth the price of admission.  Željko Lučić revives the definitive baritone role in a cast that includes Olga Peretyatko as Gilda Oksana Volkova, Nancy Fabiola HerreraStephen CostelloStefan Kocán, Joseph Calleja and Andrea Mastroni.    Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts.  Take in this interesting production if you haven’t already.   New York Times reviews premier of Michael Mayer’s 1960’s Las Vegas Rigoletto
