No Frills Rigoletto

Rigoletto in NYC by the Metropolitan Opera is a no frills Broadway Musical (Director Mayer’s, “Spring Awakening”)  meets Opera. The usual splendid costumes are absent. The jester/joker can easily be mistaken for your average Joe, even with great singing. The pageantry and mood afforded by appropriate costumes that lend recognition and expression to the original Verdi rendition is missing.
