Rigoletto is unquestionably among the greatest of operas in the standard repertory today.  Verdi wrote the opera in about six weeks, and despite difficulties with censorship due to political unrest at the time, the first performance at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice on March 11, 1851, was an unqualified success.  Originally written as a three act opera, today it is generally presented in four acts, and this second scene is the beginning of Act II. 

This solo is edited in a comprehensive and detailed manner.  Larry Hurst’s insightful performance suggestions are enclosed with this music.
