PRLog - Apr. 4, 2012 - SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. -- The Royal Opera’s Rigoletto will screen live via satellite from London, Tuesday, April 17, at 2:30 p.m. at BIG ARTS Schein Performance Hall, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel. Admission is $25.

An opera classic, Verdi’s Rigoletto, with its famous score, is loved for its melody, passion and drama. The Royal Opera’s immensely popular production, in period costume, brings the 15th-century court of Mantua, Italy alive: its womanizing Duke, the court jester Rigoletto bent on revenge and his daughter, Gilda, whom the Duke loves but still destroys.
Rigoletto is conducted by John Eliot Gardiner, and stars Dimitri Platanias, Ekaterina Siurina, Vittorio Grigolo, Pablo Bemsch and Christine Rice. “The most impressive singer was the baritone Dimitri Platanias, who on this showing could sing Rigoletto anywhere in the world: beautifully warm, heroic tone, a dynamic range from stirring forte to a pianissimo that lost nothing in colour or substance, musicianship and instinctive feeling for text – a name to watch out for in the current dearth of Verdi baritones,” writes Rodney Milnes in Opera Magazine.
         
In Opera Today, Anne Ozorio raves, “Vittorio Grigolo, hot new favourite, comes over very well indeed as the Duke of Mantua. He’s a film natural, good looking and sexy, moving as if he inhabits this set like he was born to it.”
           
Sung in Italian with English subtitles, screening will be 170 minutes and includes two intermissions. The digital projection system BIG ARTS has installed for this program is the same as that used by studios at Pixar, NFL and Disney.
