 Rigoletto (Produced by David McVicar) November 6, 2012 By Lester Lee (Winthrop, Western Australia) See All My Reviews "So far I have only treated myself to RIGOLETTO in this box set of three operas by Verdi. It is a great production, just about perfect in every way - the cast, the singing, the acting, the choreography, the camera work, the imagination, the magic... Highly recommended." Report Abuse
