Stone quarry, giant chandelier, stage-set, mostly red. Verdi’s Rigoletto. Breath-taking. There’s something magical about opera al fresco – unless, of course, it’s raining. Red symbolises “passionate love, seduction, violence, danger, anger, and adventure” (colormatters.com). And Rigoletto has it all. But no more. 2018 has been cancelled due to lack of funding. Sad face.
