Met Live in HD: Rigoletto

A Met Opera Live in HD Broadcast

Bartlett Sher's bold new take on Verdi's timeless tragedy arrives in cinemas on January 29. The Tony Award­–winning director resets the opera's action in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber, themselves boasting a combined 11 Tony Awards. Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczała as the Duke of Mantua, with leading maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium. This live cinema transmission is part of the Met's award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to movie theaters across the globe.

Runtime: approx. 3 hours, 26 minutes
