One of the most popular Verdi operas, Rigoletto has received more than ten productions in Lithuania. The tragic story of a hunchbacked court buffoon Rigoletto, who, despite humiliation and terrifying curse, makes anguished attempts to rise above his weakness. A heartrending drama of fatherly suffering, unadulterated love and power of devotion.
