Welcome to Rigoletto, our final Mainstage Production in the 2018/19 Season

Hello to all Calgary Opera Volunteers,

Welcome to our final show of the season, Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto, with libretto by Francesco Maria Piave.  The show premiered just over 168 years ago on March 11, 1851 at the Theatre La Fenice in Venice, Italy.  Since then Rigoletto has become a standard of modern opera house repertoire and a classic for so many reasons.

I hope you can join us for the show at the Jubilee Auditorium with Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, April 4th at 7pm, and Mainstage shows on April 6, 10 and 12, all at 7:30pm.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for a successful and fun season at the Opera.  I’ve had the opportunity to meet you all and see the dedication you put into your time with us.  It has been grand and I look forward to doing it all over again next year.

Looking forward to seeing you all at Rigoletto!

All the best,


Volunteer Coordinator
