A new staging at the Teatro del Maggio of Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi with Riccardo Frizza conducting, the direction of Davide Livermore and, as the main character, Leo Nucci who played the verdian role 560 times. "Perhaps the greatest drama of modern times” is how Giuseppe Verdi described Le roi s'amuse, the scandalous play by Victor Hugo which inspired Rigoletto, composed with the collaboration of the librettist Francesco Maria Piave. It was staged for the first time at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice on March 11, 1851, to enormous success. Set in sixteenth-century Mantova, the drama engages the audience with a relentless pace through to the tragic finale. Just as immovable seems the curse that looms heavy and fatal on the ruthless, deformed jester, transformed into a very human father anxious to avenge his daughter’s honor, stolen by a dissolute seducer.
