The Royal Opera House: Rigoletto

A deformed and ridiculed court jester, Riogletto, aids and abets his master in the seduction of young women. Rigoletto mocks their stricken husbands and fathers - until the tables are horribly turned. The Duke seduces Rigoletto's own daughter, Gilda, and Rigoletto is driven mad with despair. Revenge seems to be the jester's only solution, but fate turns a dark tale even darker by the tragic fall of the curtain.
