Classical 89 InterviewVerdi’s Rigoletto

Revenge and tragedy strike onstage with Verdi’s Rigoletto. Dark and brooding, this opera classic brings dramatic storytelling front and center at the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre.

Guided by the seasoned vision of Director Stephanie Havey (who has previously directed 10 productions of this very opera), this performance brings together remarkable talent and new vision for the popular tragedy.

Scott Hendricks returns to the role of Rigoletto (having received praise from Opera News for his “rich baritone and energetic stage presence”).

Jasmine Habersham reprises the role of Gilda (having made her company debut with Opera North as Gilda during the 2021-22 season).
