Leo Nucci returns to confront Rigoletto. He is directing for the new co-production with the Teatro Municipale di Piacenza. Friday 14 and Sunday 16 April the famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi with a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave is on stage. Among the top performers in the title role, Leo Nucci returns to Ferrara this time signing the direction of the new production. Francesco Ivan Ciampa conducts the Italian Philharmonic Orchestra. Among the performers Marco Ciaponi in the role of the Duke of Mantua, Amartuvshin Enkhbat is Rigoletto, while Gilda is played by Federica Guida, Sparafucile by Christian Barone, Maddalena by Rossana Rinaldi and Giovanna by Elena Borin. The voices of the choir are entrusted to the Chorus of the Municipal Theatre of Piacenza (chorus master Corrado Casati).
The story is set in Mantua, in the sixteenth century. Rigoletto, hunchback court jester, has a daughter, Gilda, whose existence tries to keep secret from courtiers, many of whom intend to take revenge on him for his fierce mockery. Gilda has fallen in love, believing him to be a poor student, with the frivolous and inconstant Duke of Mantua, sneaking into her house to make her a passionate court.
Later, the Duke’s courtiers, who intend to take revenge on Rigoletto, kidnap Gilda and take her to the palace, believing her to be the lover and not the clown’s daughter.
The daughter, seduced by the Duke, despairs of her fate; Rigoletto vows to avenge her shame. She then hires a hit man, Sparafucile. But at the last moment Gilda, still in love with the Duke, takes his place and falls stabbed in his stead.
