Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto will be presented by The Met: Live in HD at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 1 (live) and 6 p.m. (encore).

Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer sets the story for one of Verdi s most well known operas in Las Vegas circa 1960. Against a backdrop of neon lights and casinos, Mayer’s re-envisioning of the classic Verdian tragedy features an array of characters inspired by the infamous Rat Pack. Along with a score from rising Italian conductor Michele Mariotti, its stars include Piotr Beczala as the Frank Sinatra-like womanizing Duke, Zeljko Lucic as his tragic sidekick, Rigoletto, and Diana Damrau as Rigoletto’s daughter, Gilda.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for children/students. Call the Quick Center box office at 203-254-4010, or toll-free 1-877-ARTS-396.
