Serbian baritone Željko Lučić stars in Giuseppe Verdi’s landmark opera Rigoletto, this weekend’s Opera on streaming special at the San Francisco Opera!
A fool in profession and a fool in life, his Rigoletto has made a career out of mocking the misfortunes of his fellow courtiers. But when the Duke’s roving eyes land on his beloved daughter, played by Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak, Rigoletto attempts to outrun fate — and the vengeance of those he ridiculed.
Conductor Nicola Luisotti leads the opera in what the San Francisco Chronicle calls an “arresting” performance, streaming for one weekend only! Rigoletto streams all weekend long, starting Saturday at 10am Pacific. Directed for the screen by Christine Strand.
