The Inquisition and civil war rage through 15th century Spain. A rivalry between brothers unknowingly separated at birth, a crazed gypsy woman, and a tyrannical count doom the love of a noblewoman for her ardent balladeer. Roman censors halted the 1853 premiere of this rousing opera about lust, madness, and murder!
A powerhouse cast delivers Verdi’s thrilling score, led by internationally lauded Joyce El-Khoury, and Nelson Martinez, who gave a brilliant, heartbreaking performance as Knoxville Opera’s Rigoletto.
