Italian opera at its best
21 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The film "Rigoletto" is marvellous and quite electrifying, every scene is so meaningful -- high drama at its best, I call it -- and so well acted by Gobbi, a master of his craft. What a pity I've waited six decades before having the privilege of seeing it.

The main plot centres on the Duke's philandering ways and the misfortune he has brought down upon the families at court who have suffered from his escapades, in other words, no maiden is safe when the Duke is around.

Rigoletto has a lovely daughter, Gilda, that no one knows about. The Duke has been intent on secretly courting her in the disguise of a student and has entered the house. However one night she is abducted from her home while Rigoletto unwittingly aids the courtiers involved for they blindfolded him and he does not realize until too late that it was not the neighbour's house but his own house and his daughter who were targeted by the abductors. In later scenes Rigoletto plans on his revenge for injustices done but it has surprising consequences.

If you like a riveting dramatic opera, you've got it here. Don't miss it.
