Trickery and tragedy, revenge and redemption go hand-in-hand as the licentious Duke of Mantua conspires to seduce Gilda, the secret daughter of Rigoletto, the hunchbacked court jester. With some of the most powerful, stirring music ever composed – including the immortal aria “La donna è mobile” – Rigoletto  is the quintessential Verdi opera, a masterful and gripping balancing act between the storm-tossed forces of darkness and the unwavering light of love.

Mornings with the Maestro @ Museum of Fine Arts

No one can discuss, illustrate and illuminate the wonderful world of opera with more finesse (and more fun) than St. Pete Opera’s own Maestro Mark Sforzini. For 10 years, his Maestro Series has been the gateway to enjoyment for thousands of Bay Area opera fans, from the newly-won to the veteran aficionado. Prior to each of our Mainstage productions, join Maestro – and several of the professional singers who’ll perform at the big show – for an educational, entertaining and mainly musical overview of the opera – including the composer’s own thoughts on the songs and the storyline. You’ll never hear (or see) opera the same way again!
