Sedona News – The Mary D. Fisher Theatre is honored to be the home for the Met Live Opera programs for the 2021-2022 season, presented by the Sedona International Film Festival. The season will continue with Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto” on Saturday, Jan. 29. There will be one show at 11 a.m. — a live simulcast as it is happening at the Met!
Plan to come early as John Steinbrunner will lead a pre-opera talk one hour before the production.
Tony Award–winning director Bartlett Sher creates a bold new take on Verdi’s timeless tragedy, resetting the opera’s action in 1920s Europe, with Art Deco sets by Michael Yeargan and elegant costumes by Catherine Zuber.
Baritone Quinn Kelsey, a commanding artist at the height of his powers, brings his searing portrayal of the title role to the Met for the first time, starring alongside soprano Rosa Feola as Gilda and tenor Piotr Beczala as the Duke of Mantua, with Maestro Daniele Rustioni on the podium.
The Met Live Opera’s “Rigoletto” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 11 a.m. (live simulcast). The pre-opera talk will take place one hour before the show.
