Michele Mariotti (Conductor); Diana Damrau (Gilda), Piotr Beczała (Duke), Željko Lučić (Rigoletto)
Director Michael Mayer reimagines Verdi’s towering tragedy in 1960s Las Vegas—an ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. In this production, inspired by the antics of the Rat Pack, tenor Piotr Beczała is the womanizing Duke, with baritone Željko Lucic as his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto. Soprano Diana Damrau is Rigoletto’s daughter—and their victim.
