'Courtiers, vile and despicable race, how much were you paid for my dearest?'
Rigoletto is the title of the famous “popular trilogy” by the Busseto maestro. Like the heroes in Il trovatore and La traviata, Rigoletto is a social outcast, a hunchbacked who works as a jester in the corrupt court of Mantua in the late 16th century, ruled by the beautiful and young Duke of Mantua, a morbid seducer. When his efforts to safeguard the innocence of his daughter Gilda are shattered by the Duke’s lust, the jester will attempt an impossible revenge.
Opera de Tenerife announces that, due to the cancellation for personal reasons of baritone Leo Nucci in the production of Rigoletto, the Spanish artist Luis Cansino will play the role of Rigoletto.
