The Royal Opera production of Verdi’s ‘Rigoletto’ to be screened in cinemas worldwide this March!

The Royal Opera‘s acclaimed production of Verdi’s dark masterpiece, RIGOLETTO, which opened the 2021/22 season back in September, will be broadcast to more than 700 cinemas in 17 countries across the world this March.

RIGOLETTO was performed and filmed in September 2021 and will be screened in cinemas on Thursday 10 March 2022 – the same month that the opera first premiered in a sold-out La Fenice over 170 years ago – with encore screenings from Sunday 13 March 2022.

A tragic story of vengeance, set in a pitiless world of luxurious decadence, corruption and social decay, RIGOLETTO stars world-renowned baritone Carlos Álvarez in the title role, internationally celebrated soprano Lisette Oropesa as Gilda, and acclaimed tenor Liparit Avetisyan as the Duke of Mantua.

The production is Oliver Mears’ first since becoming Director of The Royal Opera in 2017 and is conducted by Music Director of The Royal Opera, Antonio Pappano.
