Rigoletto--Scottish Opera

On tour

Award-winning director Matthew Richardson (The Devil Inside 2016) and Olivier Award-winning designer Jon Morrell revive their powerful production of Verdi's masterpiece.  Read more …

Set in a dark and dangerous underworld where cruelty and inhumanity are rife—and women are objects merely to be played with and discarded—it tells the tragic tale of seduction, revenge and a father's suffocating love for his only daughter with a clarity that is completely compelling and utterly heartbreaking.

From the aching naivety of Gilda's first love to the dissolute revelry of 'La donna è mobile', Verdi's score is packed with some of the best-loved music in opera. Internationally-acclaimed baritone Aris Argiris heads up a cast of exciting talent including Lina Johnson, much-praised for her Gilda in Trieste in 2016;  award-winning British tenor Adam SmithDavid Shipley, a recent graduate of the prestigious Jette Parker Young Artist programme; and Scottish Opera Emerging Artists Alexey Gusev, Lucy Anderson and Bethan Langford. British Conductor Rumon Gamba conducts.
