Wonderful and beautiful music, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you like operatic music at its melodic and vocal best. Verdi wrote some of his most beautiful music for this opera. Great singers cast.

Don't see it if you don't like any kind of opera. If you haven't gone to an opera before read the synopsis and La Donna e Mobile youself over to the Met. Read more

The New York Times
January 2nd, 2022

"Critic's Pick!...If shifting the opera’s setting from Renaissance Italy to 1920s Berlin was not entirely convincing, this was still a detailed, dramatic staging, full of insights into the characters. The chorus and orchestra excelled under the conducting of Daniele Rustioni, who led a lean, transparent performance that balanced urgency and lyricism."

“Rigoletto” is a barn-burner—you have to gallop along with the sexism, violence and sentimentality in order for it to work. In this production, despite some gripping theatrical and vocal moments, the all-consuming sense of tragedy was missing."

"While I was a fan of the "Rat Pack" production that preceded it--I know many weren't--I was ready to see what the Tony-Award winning director had up his sleeve. What followed was disappointing, despite some creditable singing and smooth, involved orchestral playing under Daniele Rustioni, with much blame I thought, going to Sher."
