Heber Opera is pleased to announce that our 2018 production will be Verdi’s Rigoletto containing some of opera’s best known arias for tenor, soprano and baritone. The story is one of a father’s possessive love, a daughter’s innocent love and a man’s selfish love all of which culminate in an act of revenge that goes horribly wrong. Along the way to the heartbreaking climax there are lighter moments and we cover everything from sex, lies, kidnapping and a vengeful curse to a murderous revenge that backfires because of the machinations of a dastardly brother and sister. Regular supporters of Heber Opera will know that we aim to present opera in a dramatic and approachable way and we hope that Rigoletto will be no exception. We look forward to seeing you next May.
