Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Live Cinema screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of "Rigoletto" on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m.
In a pitiless world of luxurious decadence, corruption and social decay, Director of The Royal Opera Oliver Mears sets his scene. In his first work for his own Company, Mears brings Verdi’s masterpiece into the modern world. Verdi’s thrilling "Rigoletto" pits power against innocence, beauty against ugliness. This special anniversary screening (filmed in September 2021) of Verdi’s "Rigoletto," conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano, celebrates 171 years since its premiere in 1851.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours, including an on-screen introduction and one intermission. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online at www.phtww.org or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
Additional health and safety measures, including required mask use, will be enforced.
