Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto
LA Opera finished its season strongly with a revival of Mark Lamos’s 2010 production of Rigoletto. This staging’s first outing in Los Angeles was among the finest presentations of a Verdi opera in the company’s history. The current revival is even stronger than the original.
The 2017/18 mainstage season closed with one of the foundational works of the operatic repertoire, conducted by Artist in Residence Matthew Aucoin. Unusually for us, we showcased two different trios of international artists performing the principal roles. Director Mark Lamos returned to stage his striking production, last seen here in 2010.
Production made possible by generous support from GRoW @ Annenberg and from Sebastian Paul and Marybelle Musco
