Treachery, seduction, and a raging father dead set on revenge. Rigoletto - he's the jaded jester paid to make others laugh in the debauched court of Mantua. But when his innocent daughter is cruelly seduced by the predatory Duke, Rigoletto stops being funny and vows revenge. Seething with rage, he launches an elaborate plot to avenge his beloved child. But everything goes terribly, terribly wrong... Music Director Emmanuel Villaume conducts this Dallas Opera co-production with Houston Grand Opera and The Atlanta Opera, which is sung in Italian with English supertitles.
