Libretto
Act 1

Scene 1

Rigoletto, jester of the lecherous Duke of Mantua, lives a double life. At the court he is a willing performer of his master’s will, but in a small house far from the palace he is a loving father, who conceals his daughter Gilda from the world. Rigoletto cruelly mocked grief of the old Count Monterone, whose daughter was seduced by the Duke. Monterone angrily curses the jester.

Scene 2

Like a terrible burden weighs the old man’s curse over Rigoletto. Late in the evening near the house where Gilda lives, Rigoletto meets a stranger who offers to carry out any crime for money. The meeting of Rogoletto and his daughter is full of tenderness and love. But Gilda hides her acquaintance with a young man and passionate feelings that were born in her heart, from her father.

The courtiers learn about Rigoletto’s secret visits. They kidnap Gilda, believing that she is the jester’s lover. Rigoletto is filled with despair.

Act 2

The Duke is angry: beautiful stranger has disappeared. Willing to please their lord, the courtiers tell him about the night adventure – the girl is in the palace. The Duke hurries to his apartments. Neither threats nor entreaties can help Rogoletto bring his daughter back. Gilda runs out from the Duke’s bedroom. Holding back tears, she tells her father the sad story of her love. Anger and thirst for revenge fill the heart of Rigoletto.

Act 3

House of the assassin Sparafucile. Rigoletto bargains with him of murder of the Duke, who is now fascinated with the bandit’s sister Maddalena. But the girl persuades her brother to have mercy upon her lover and kill the first passerby instead. Gilda, who is brought here by Rigoletto to prove the Duke’s debauchery, becomes a secret witness of their conversation. At the cost of her own life, she decides to save her lover. At midnight Rigoletto arrives to make sure that his revenge is fulfilled. But at that moment he hears the Duke singing a careless song. The wretched father sees his Gilda dying.

About show

  «Ріголетто» – одна з найбіш відомих опер Д. Верді написана за мотивами п’єси В. Гюго «Король забавляється». В основі драми були реальні діючі герої, тільки перенесені в оригінальні сюжетні колізії. Ця опера показує справжню і чисту любов, яка змушує молоду дівчину пожертвувати собою заради коханого. Крім того, в ній є зрада, запроданство, найманий вбивця, містика і глибока біль батька, який втратив свою єдину дочку, але вимушений залишатися в своїй масці блазня.
