The Met: Live in HD returns to The Clark with ‘Rigoletto’
A modern twist on Verdi’s classic "Rigoletto" comes to the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as part of its Met: Live in HD series on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 12:55 p.m. Tickets are $25 ($22 members; $18 students) and may be ordered online or by calling 413-458-0638).
Rising Italian conductor Michele Mariotti leads the new production of "Rigoletto," seen in a new staging by the Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer in his Met debut. Mayer’s approach transports the story from 16th-century Italy to Las Vegas in 1960. The fast-paced storyline involves everything from seduction and abduction to murder and revenge.
"I’ve tried to imagine a recent world that captures the decadence of the Duke’s palace, where the participants are in pursuit of power, money, and beauty," Mayer says. "Las Vegas in the ‘60s is such a world, where a kind of prankster energy could go bad - it’s the epitome of the kinds of events that happen in ‘Rigoletto.’"
Approximate running time is 180 minutes.
The Clark is located at 225 South St.
