A drama of passion, love and treason, the 1851 opera Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi, based on Victor Hugo’s five act play Le Roi s'Amuse and with a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, is one of the masterpieces of the composer’s mid to late period. The Opéra Bastille is offering a production of the three act melodrama in Italian, featuring Željko Lučić in the titular role and Vittorio Grigolo as the Duke of Mantua.
