Kentucky Opera Lecture Series: Rigoletto

Kentucky Opera Lecture Series: Rigoletto

Main Library, Wednesday, February 6, 6:30 PM

Originally banned by the censors, Rigoletto is Verdi's incomparably great characterization - Shakespearean in its complexity and grandeur. Despite the moral corruption, the masterwork continues to rivet audiences with its incendiary drama and outpouring of famous melodies. Join stage director Kathleen Belcher and conductor Roberto Kalb as they shed light on the continued relevance of the opera, and how to approach the misogyny, discrimination and accountability in producing the opera for the audience of today.
