Verdi: Rigoletto

Recorded live at the Sydney Opera House 2010

Alan Opie (Rigoletto), Emma Matthews (Gilda), Paul O'Neill (Duke of Mantua), David Parkin (Sparafucile) & Elizabeth Campbell (Maddalena)

Opera Australia Chorus & Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, Giovanni Reggioli

CD - 2 discs


Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.

One of Opera Australia's best-loved productions. Inspired by Fellini's classic film La dolca vita, Verdi's dark melodrama is transposed into the world of modern day mafiosi.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2012


“Paul O'Neill sings ably though his dramatic presentation is dull. Emma Matthews's Gilda is far more consistent; she sings with keen technical aplomb and manages the tricky task of playing a character whose innocence proves a terrible vulnerability...Giovanni Reggioli is the decent conductor.”
