Rigoletto (Royal Opera House) - Reviews - 13 Sep 2014

Rigoletto (Royal Opera House) - Reviews - 13 Sep 2014 | music-all | Scoop.it

Awash with blissful melodies it may be, but Rigoletto, Verdi's operatic adaptation of Victor Hugo's Le Roi s'amuse, is as dark a revenge tragedy as anything penned by the Jacobean playwrights. That is whyDavid McVicar's now-venerable production for the Royal Opera is so powerful, for designer Michael Vale's vast revolving set represents Mantua as an ultra-noir sin city that reeks of humanity's foul underbelly. However workaday a revival may be, the production itself always rewards a visit.

In 18th-century Paris, the appellation boulevard theatre meant a formerly itinerant acting company who’d carved out year-round indoor space along the newly fashionable Boulevard du Temple. Operating outside the strictures of aristocratic cultural policies, they created viable business models and survived that boulevard’s eventual decline.
