Court in the act

Rigoletto may be a mere court jester – and a hunchbacked one at that – but he excels at his job of humiliating the courtiers of the libertine Duke of Mantua. This version of Verdi’s vivid tragedy is produced by David McVicar for the Royal Opera. McVicar, who has a reputation as the bad boy of opera thanks to his bloody stagings and professional tantrums, puts the court’s inherent cruelty at the heart of his production, in which richly dressed courtiers revel to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances.

This streaming of the Royal Opera show takes place at The Edge Arts Centre in Much Wenlock at 7.15pm on Tuesday 16 January, with tickets priced at £10/12. Visit edgeartscentre.com for details.
