Rigoletto from Lyric, Saturday at Noon

Giuseppe Filianoti is "the pre-eminent lyric tenor of his generation"; Željko Lučić has triumphed around the world in Verdi. Hear their interpretations of the jester-capped glory of the Verdi repertoire, Rigoletto, this Saturday. Of course, the treacherous triangle at Rigoletto’s core requires a heartrending soprano, and Lyric has one: the Uzbekistan-born, Tchaikovsky Gold Medal-winning Albina Shagimuratova, making her Lyric debut.
