George Gagnidze and Zeljko Lucic will share the title role of Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Met this fall, replacing Simon Keenlyside, who is taking a necessary period of vocal rest for much of the year and temporarily removing the role of Rigoletto from his repertoire. Gagnidze will sing the first seven performances of the opera, while Lucic—already scheduled to sing the December performances of the run—will also sing Rigoletto on November 13, 16, and 19.” So says the Met’s press office, as reported by Parterre.com

La donna del lago

Rossini: La donna del lago

La donna del lago (The Lady of the Lake) is an opera by Gioacchino Rossini with a libretto by Andrea Leone Tottola based on the French translation of The Lady of the Lake, a narrative poem written in 1810 by Sir Walter Scott, whose work continued to popularize the image of the romantic highlands. Scott’s basic story has been noted as coming from “the hint of an incident stemming from the frequent custom of James V, the King of Scotland, of walking through the kingdom in disguise.” Mays, Desirée (2013), Opera Unveiled: 2013. Santa Fe, NM: The Santa Fe Opera, 2013.
