The Met kicks off the new year with Bartlett Sher's innovative production of Verdi's masterpiece Rigoletto. January 29 we see it live at bio Studio Acusticum.

A new version of Verdi's dramatic tragedy about the court jester Rigoletto. Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher moves the plot to the 1920s. Expect stylish art deco scenography and elegant costumes, created by two designers who together have won eight Tony Awards.

Baritone Quinn Kelsey plays the role of Rigoletto for the first time at the Met. In the role of Gilda, we see the soprano Rosa Feola. Conductor is Daniele Rustioni.

The first opera in Giuseppe Verdi's "trilogy" which also includes The Troubadour and La traviata. Rigoletto revolves around three main characters: a court jester, brilliant but broken in body and soul; the sybaritic nobleman he serves and the fool's naive teenage daughter who ends up in the middle of them. It is a story about love in all its forms - parental love, romantic and carnal love - set with an intoxicatingly beautiful music and a nuanced and psychologically empathetic libretto.

With an act that goes from seduction to kidnapping and ultimately murder, the opera is essentially the story of a fatally overburdened single parent who desperately wants to protect his only daughter.
