Boasting two of opera’s all-time favorite arias (“Questa o quella” and “La donna è mobile”), Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto also spotlights one of opera’s most complex title characters. This tragic story of the curse laid upon the hunchbacked jester, his daughter Gilda and the lecherous duke he serves is based on a play by Victor Hugo. West Bay Opera’s skilled singers and the intimate setting at the Lucie Stern Theatre in Palo Alto offer the prime opportunity to experience Verdi’s masterpiece with all of its emotional and musical power on full display. Rigoletto will be sung in Italian with English titles.
