The Duke of Mantua seduces women while his hunchbacked Jester, Rigoletto, insults the husbands and fathers.  The joke goes too far when a curse falls upon Rigoletto’s innocent daughter, Gilda.  An assassin and seductress are added to the mix.  Will Gilda’s love for the Duke bring down the curse upon them all? This production is in a chamber opera setting that provides an intimate feeling with a distinctive personal touch.
