Let's get together and join other Houston Young Professionals for Opera. We will meet beforehand after 7:00pm to talk and then proceed to our seats for the 7:30pm show. We will meet again during intermission if time permits.
Rigoletto, jester to the Duke of Mantua, is both reviled and respected for his razor-sharp, bitter wit. His only joy is his daughter, Gilda, whom he has hidden from his amoral employer's court. But Rigoletto cannot protect her from falling in love. When the Duke poses as a young student and adds Gilda to his long list of conquests, the jester swears revenge. Passion drives him to plot the Duke's murder but, naïve and blinded by love, Gilda spoils her father's scheme with heart- wrenching results.
