‘Rigoletto’ at Staatsoper Berlin
On February 11, 17, 24 and March 3, Christopher Maltman will portray the title role in Verdi’s Rigoletto with Staatsoper Berlin.
He gained significant recognition when he performed the role in this production by Bartlett Sher in Staatsoper Berlin’s 2019-20 season, with Operawire writing “Maltman’s Rigoletto was commandingly confident from the first notes he sang. The sheer power of his voice was awe-inspiring as it thundered through the auditorium.”
Also included in this star-studded cast is Erin Morley as Gilda, Andrei Danilov as Duke of Mantua, Grigory Shkarupa as Sparafucile, Marina Prudenskaya as Maddalena, Ema Nikolovska as Giovanna, Adam Kutny as Monterone, Carles Pachon as Marullo, Spencer Britten as Borsa, Benjamin Chamandy as Count Ceprano/Court Usher and Clara Nadeshdin as Countess Ceprano/Page. Ivan Repušić conducts.
