CANCELLED - Rigoletto Noir

Presented by Nashville Opera at TEMPORARILY CLOSED TPAC - Andrew Jackson Hall, Nashville TN

Apr 08 - 10 2021
CANCELLED - Rigoletto Noir

Nashville Opera Statement:

Dear Opera friends,

Out of the utmost concern for the safety of our patrons, staff, and artists, Nashville Opera has made the decision to cancel Rigoletto, scheduled for April 8 and 10, 2021. Ticketholders may choose to donate the cost of their tickets to Nashville Opera or receive a full refund by filling out the form here.
Subscribers, rest assured that this cancellation will not affect your status.  When we are able to resume performances indoors at full capacity, subscriber seating precedents will be based on the 2019-2020 (pre-COVID) season.

John Hoomes’ creative new staging puts an edgy film-noir spin on the story while letting Verdi’s music pack its original punch! The wise-cracking Rigoletto, despised by all save his beautiful daughter, is powerless to protect her from the lechery of his boss, Duke. From the slick world of the jet set to a seedy back-alley dive bar, ­­Rigoletto soon discovers that revenge can be a double-edged sword. Lush melodies blend with dark intrigue in this tale of a father’s vengeance. Spoiler alert: Verdi uses what is arguably the most famous aria on the planet to serve up the plot’s bitterest twist!
