The version of Rigoletto staged in this November session (2019) is part of the innovative project by the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino directed by Francesco Micheli, who have created a dramaturgy which brings together the three popular works by Verdi. The three operas Trovatore, Rigoletto and Traviata are to be staged in September 2018. There are two common threads running through the trilogy. The first, a monumental Italian flag which opens the first scene of each of the titles, a set characterised by a number of repeated items, varied and according to the context with lighting and the predominant colours of green, white and red, one for each opera. The second is the Choir, a choir which according to Giuseppe Verdi is a single character which binds, passes through and migrates from the three operas, which do not have a unitarity as such, but which penetrate deeply into the collective imagination, joined through the sometimes contrasting emotions of passion. The predominant colour in this Traviata, now part of the Maggio’s repertoire, is green
