Director Michael Mayer has placed his new production of Verdi's towering tragedy in Las Vegas in 1960, an ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. Piotr Beczala is the womanizing Duke, Zeljko Lucic is his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto, and Diana Damrau sings Rigoletto's daughter, Gilda. Michele Mariotti conducts.
Sung in Italian with Met titles in English, German, Italian, and Spanish.
Approximate running time 3 hrs. 2 min.
