Rigoletto…it’s the perfect opera for opera newbies. It’s easy to get Rigoletto. It has all the elements of great opera: amazing music; a compelling edge-of-seat story; great roles for soprano, mezzo-sops, tenors, baritone, bass and a chorus; cool sets and costumes. And not one extra note.

Opera in the Triangle finished strong in 2009 with Verdi’s Rigoletto performed in October by the Opera Company of North Carolina. Music lovers and opera aficionados had no trouble dubbing it a masterpiece. Read one review here.
