3 - 23 June 2009. Roberto Abbado conducts Giuseppe Verdi's much loved 'Rigoletto' at the Teatro Real. An opera in three acts, Rigoletto was first performed at La Fenice in Venice in 1851; it was a tremendous success. The libretto was written by Francesco Maria Piave and was based on 'Le roi s'amuse' by Victor Hugo. Considered by many to be one of the world's operatic masterpieces, to this day it is one of the most performed operas internationally. It is a story of feuds, curses, forbidden love, deceit and tragedy.

Verdi has a long association with the Teatro Real - he visited personally in 1863 for the Spanish premier of 'La Forz del Destino'.
