OPERA is coming to town.  Qualicum Civic Centre to be precise.  Vancouver Island Opera is presenting a fully staged version of Verdi’s RIGOLETTO with orchestra onOctober the 18th and 19th.

Come and here the thrilling high notes of the young tenor (The Duke) singing the familiar aria LA DONNA E MOBILE and the gorgeous voice of the baritone (Rigoletto) pleading and plotting revenge for the honour of his beautiful daughter Gilda.

If you have never been but wanted to experience  theatre that is opera, this is a great one to start with.  While it is sung in Italian, the story is very easy to understand and there will be a running translation projected on the side of the stage.  Come and experience an emotional roller coaster.  You will not be disappointed.  For more information check http://www.vancouverislandopera.ca or phone Tatiana 250-586-6095.
