Opéra Rigoletto

Italie, 2016, 2h35 – Opéra
Réalisation : Claus Guth
Composition : Giuseppe Verdi

Synopsis : Entre le duc, futile, licencieux, et Gilda, victime de l’ignorance dans laquelle elle est retenue prisonnière, se dresse la figure à deux visages du bouffon bossu et du père obsédé par la malédiction. Monstrueux et déchirant, grotesque et sublime, le rôle-titre atteint son apogée dans l’air ≪ C ortigiani, vil razza dannata ≫, dont le mouvement descendant, de l’explosion de rage à l’imploration, affirme la capacité du compositeur à plier une forme héritée du bel canto à la vérité du théâtre. Placée sous la direction de Nicola Luisotti, cette nouvelle production de Rigoletto marque la première collaboration du metteur en scène Claus Guth avec l’Opéra de Paris.
