Event Details

Giuseppe Verdi’s masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the breathtaking water stage of Lake Constance, Bregenz. Directed and designed by Philipp Stölzl, and captured live last summer, you can now see it in U.S. cinemas, including at the ACME!!

One of Verdi’s most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father’s rage and a daughter’s shame. This timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity.

It features several of opera’s best-known arias-including Rigoletto’s passionate denouncement “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,” Gilda’s dreamy “Caro nome” and the Duke’s instantly recognizable “La donna è mobile.” Rigoletto was first performed in 1851 and is the first of the extraordinary “middle-period” trio of Verdi masterpieces that also includes La Traviata and Il Trovatore.

Please note: Rigoletto on the Lake contains a sequence of flashing lights, which might affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitivity.
