This lavish production of Giuseppe Verdi's classic opera stars Roberto Servile as Rigoleto, a royal jester. Despite his comical personality, Rigoleto is a man of strong passions, and when he discovers that the Duke (Marcelo Alvarez), a notorious womanizer, has bedded his lovely daughter Gilda (Inva Mula), he becomes powerfully enraged. Rigoleto secures the services of the hired killer Sparafucile to restore honor to his daughter's name, but his bid for revenge takes an unexpected turn.
