Verdi’s RIGOLETTO

For me the evening’s discovery was Haegee Lee, who sang the part of Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda. This young soprano from South Korea studied at the Conservatoire National de Région Pierre Barbizet, Marseille, and then took part in the Young Artists’ Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. She is still studying, and to judge from her stunning performance last night she is a future Queen of the Operatic Stage and musical legend. She absolutely held the audience in the palm of her hand with her exquisite delivery of some of the greatest arias Verdi ever wrote. Her duets with her father were tender and beautifully acted. The rôle is of course, unbearably tragic and the dark cruelty of the ending has made some people fear to see this opera again, but we endure the tale to be rewarded with singing of such expression in a brilliant, thrilling voice.
