ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA : Atlanta Opera, Orchestra, and chorus performs in the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
Conducted by Joseph Rescigno
The Atlanta Opera celebrates its 35th year of live productions with Giuseppe Verdi's tragic masterpiece, Rigoletto. This new, visually stimulating production is a co-production of Boston Lyric Opera, The Atlanta Opera, and Opera Omaha and was originally directed by The Atlanta Opera's General & Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun. Not seen on The Atlanta Opera stage since 2000, Rigoletto will be presented on February 28 and March 3, 6 and 8 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. The Boston Globe hailed the production as "delivering the kind of energetic performance... that had audiences rising swiftly to its feet." Opera News, reviewing the Omaha mounting, said the production "let loose with vibrant, contrasting visual and musical colors."
