Immorality, kidnapping, seduction, passion, and murder are but a few words that summarize the plot of “Rigoletto.” It is Verdi’s first work (after 16 others) to attain a permanent place in the popular repertory. “Rigoletto” has some of Verdi’s best-known music, especially one tenor aria that has been used to sell tomato paste and Doritos on television.
Jeffrey Engel will detail the background of “Rigoletto” and play recordings of musical highlights.
