Event Description

Resonance Works is thrilled to close its ninth season with a long-awaited production of Giuseppe Verdi’s heartbreaking opera masterpiece Rigoletto. Vibrating with emotion, Rigoletto is a timeless tale about fate and revenge. Rigoletto tries to protect his pure-hearted daughter Gilda, but when she falls for an infamous Duke in disguise, she encounters a treacherous world of privilege and power. This beloved tragedy has been reimagined by acclaimed stage director Mo Zhou, who updates the story to the glamor and sleaze of 1930s Hollywood, bringing Gilda’s experience into sharp focus.

Baritone Andrew Cummings takes on the role of Rigoletto, lending his “hefty voice and formidable presence” (Houston Chronicle) to the character. Venezuelan soprano Maria Brea, recently a finalist in the Paris Opera Competition, makes her role and Resonance Works debut as Gilda.

This mainstage production will be accompanied by a streaming world premiere of L’assassino, a hip-hopera creation by composer and performing artist K.F. Jacques. A prequel to the Rigoletto story, L’assassino will tell of the dark beginnings of the assassin Sparafucile through Jacques’ unique fusion of hip-hop and opera. Jacques’ “Corsair” premiered in last season’s Tales from a Safe Distance and was named Best New Local Opera Production of 2020 in The Chicago Reader.

Attendees must present proof of vaccination and remain masked during the performance.
