In anticipation of the performance of selections from Verdi's Rigoletto by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (which will occur Saturday, November 12 at the Michigan Theatre), Richard LeSueur, opera lover extraordinaire, will discuss the plot and the music of this classic opera.

This tragic tale of ill-fated love was the first opera of Verdi's great middle period and contains some of the most popular arias and ensembles in the operatic world. This lecture will include recordings of some of these highlights.
