Photos from Arena Opera Festival 2017
The town of Mantua is reproduced in the Arena by the director Ivo Guerra in his setting for Rigoletto, Verdi’s interpretation of Victor Hugo’s play the Le Roi s’amuse, both of which works were censored in their time. Defined by Verdi himself as “the greatest play of modern times”, the work centres on the role of the court jester Rigoletto; Outwardly a misshapen, ridiculous character, inwardly passionate and full of love for his daughter Gilda, seduced by the libertine Duke of Mantua. The most famous of opera jesters holds the title role in a plot which is both grotesque and sublime, hinging on the Leitmotiv of a curse. An expression in music providing richness of melody and powerful action on stage.
