Flat Pack Music, the Northwest’s primary outreach opera company, and not-for-profit organisation, return to begin their 2020 season!
Focussing on making opera and classical music accessible to a wider audience they bring musical events and fully staged operas to your local spaces. Using English translations and relatable settings, they want you to understand every word and feel every emotion as they bring these works to life before your eyes.
This year they are performing Verdi’s Rigoletto, a fantastic opera which premiered in 1851! The translation for this production has been written by the Olivier Award winning librettist Amanda Holden and is being directed by Sarah Helsby-Hughes. With their cast of professional singers you are sure to be captivated by this gripping tale.
A tragic story of jealousy, revenge and sacrifice, Rigoletto is one of Verdi’s most popular operas. Featuring some of opera’s most beautiful and famous music, including ‘La donna è mobile’ and ‘Caro nome’.
Rigoletto is a real joker and his latest wisecrack has started a vendetta that’s far from funny. Now, with his daughter seduced by the dissolute Duke, Rigoletto is out for revenge. But he definitely won’t have the last laugh. With three performances already booked in and selling fast it’s going to be an amazing start to the year.
