Verdi Rigoletto (Act 3)

The SSO marks the bicentennial of the birth of Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) with an all-Verdi extravaganza, including a semi-staged performance of Act 3 from his operatic masterpiece Rigoletto, a stirring tale of seduction, betrayal, and revenge. Composed by Verdi in his twilight years, the Te Deum for double chorus and orchestra is the last and grandest installment of his Four Sacred Pieces which were published just three years before his death.
