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 or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. If you want to purchase 4 or more titles in the Live Cinema series together and save 10%, please call the box office at 509-529-6500 (offer not available online).
Please review our current health and safety precautions, including required mask use. Ticket holders will receive an email during the week before the show with any updates.
The Live Cinema Series is supported by Shakespeare Walla Walla, a local 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that aims to make Shakespeare and theater approachable and entertaining to students in eastern Washington and Oregon.
