Director Michael Mayer reimagines Verdi’s towering tragedy in Las Vegas in 1960 — an ideal setting for this eternal conflict of depravity and innocence. Tenor Piotr Beczała is the womanizing Duke, with baritone Željko Lucic as his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto.
Estimated run time: 2 hours, 31 minutes with one intermission
