Rigoletto is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi. The Italian libretto was written by Francesco Maria Piave based on the play Le roi s'amuse by Victor Hugo. It was first performed at La Fenice in Venice on March 11, 1851. It is considered by many to be the first of the operatic masterpieces of Verdi's middle-to-late career. Verdi was commissioned to write a new opera by the La Fenice opera house in Venice in 1850, at a time when he was already a well-known composer with a degree of freedom in choosing the works he would prefer to set to music

Giuseppe Verdi: Rigoletto Highlights.

Perhaps the opera might have been still more telling if Verdi had been allowed to follow Victor Hugo's original plot, in which the putrescence emanates not from a mere Duke, but from a king. Still, we get the point: there is something rotten in this state. That, it has to be said, makes Rigoletto's daughter Gilda problematic, her utter virtuousness hard to swallow. Nor does Rigoletto's fondness for her seem as healthy as Verdi presumably intended. The sack in which she dies is as stifling as his love.
