Audiences Are Raving About “Rigoletto”!

Pacific Symphony’s Rigoletto. April 20, 2023.

We presented our first and second performances of Verdi’s Rigoletto, and reactions from the audience are flying in! Here’s what they’re saying: 

“Voices, music, and acting all 10 out of 10!”

“The principals were outstanding, the staging was very creative, the details of the orchestra could be heard because they weren’t in a pit, making it sparkle, the men of Pacific Chorale were excellent. I can’t think of anything better than a five-star-plus rating.”

“This was a very special performance by the orchestra and the performers. Thank you for doing it and let’s have more. Thank you to all involved.”

“Interesting staging with the tarot cards, fine soloists, Pacific Chorale men blew me away at the end of the first act. Carl doing his usual fine conducting.”
