This extraordinarily powerful 1983 production may be the best-sung performance by Luciano Pavarotti on DVD. Filmed on location in Italian Renaissance landmarks including the Castello di San Giorgio in Mantua, the Piazza Duomo in Cremona, and the Teatro Farnese in Parma, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle’s lavish production of “Rigoletto” captures all the tenderness and tragedy of Verdi’s heartbreaking drama. Luciano Pavarotti in his formidable prime is the dashing dissolute Duke of Mantua who seduces fair, innocent Gilda - a virtuoso performance by Edita Gruberova – away from her protective father, the hunchback court jester Rigoletto, sung and acted with indelible pathos by Ingvar Wixell.
