Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra.


The masterpiece they tried to ban.

Starring Vladimir Dragos* and Iurie Gisca* as Rigoletto.

Featuring a magnificent golden eagle with a seven-foot wingspan and two royal greyhounds.

A stunning traditional production recapturing the decadence of Renaissance Italy with lavish sets and opulent costumes.

Celebrating the return of the critically acclaimed soprano Alyona Kistenyova* as Gilda.

Verdi's masterpiece Rigoletto is a dramatic tale of the jester's daughter whose heart is stolen by a charming but unreliable ruler - and how her father's attempts to prevent the love affair lead to tragedy. The opera was almost banned because it exposed the licentious behaviour of the powers-that-be at court.

Featuring the two of the most celebrated tenor arias La Donna Mobile and Questa o Quella justly turned into classics by Caruso, Rigoletto is based on a play by Victor Hugo, who wrote Les Miserables.
