Maritime Concert Opera’s June show will be Verdi’s great tragedy, Rigoletto.
A curse follows the court jester Rigoletto, whose attempts to keep his precious daughter Gilda out of the hands of the lecherous Duke of Mantua bring tragedy.
Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
The cast features baritone Andrew Tees as Rigoletto, coloratura soprano Suzanne Rigden as Gilda, tenor Jason Davis as the Duke of Mantua and Lunenburg mezzo soprano Nina Scott-Stoddart as Maddalena.
Performances will be from Sunday June 18 to Saturday June 24 in Halifax, Annapolis Royal, Shelburne and Lunenburg. More information here!
