There are FOUR remaining live events of the seventh season of The Met: Live in HD beginning with Verdi’s Rigoletto on Saturday, February 16. Three more performances will follow through May 2013.

This weekend you can enjoy Michael Mayer’s bold new production which locates Verdi’s tragedy of lust, betrayal, and revenge in Las Vegas in 1960. Željko Lučić sings the title role and Diana Damrau is his beautiful daughter, who falls under the spell of Piotr Beczala’s womanizing Duke.
It’s receiving rave reviews!
Diana Damrau is a stunning Gilda… Piotr Beczala displays a big, beautiful tenor with great presence” (Wall Street Journal). As Rigoletto, Željko Lučić’s “voice is big and penetrating, focused and true… His phrasing is supple and elegant” (New York Times).
