Rigoletto is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi. The Italian libretto was written by Francesco Maria Piave based on the play The King's Jester by Victor Hugo. Despite serious initial problems with the Austrian censors who had control over northern Italian theatres at the time and since the play was still under a 50-year ban by the French government, the opera had a triumphant premiere in Venice on 11 March 1851. It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi's middle-to-late career. Its tragic story revolves around the licentious Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester Rigoletto, and Rigoletto's beautiful daughter Gilda. The opera's original title, The Curse, refers to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto's encouragement. The curse comes to fruition when Gilda likewise falls in love with the Duke and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from the assassins hired by her father.

That's one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind. These famous words are forever etched into every person's mind that watched man's first step on the moon on July 20, 1969 culminating centuries of curiosity when man first looked up at the moon and wondered, "I wonder what's up there?" This moment was relived on November 1, 2013 as the Southwest Symphony Orchestra paid homage to the men and women who braved the unknown to pave the way for Neil Armstrong's first step on the moon. Under the direction of Maestro Gary Caldwell, the Southwest Symphony takes us from the first flight in plywood and canvas airplanes to our modern rockets and hypersonic jets. A recording of this concert is now available at SWSORecordings.com for only $10. Your purchase will help support the Southwest Symphony Orchestra.
