Act 1: An apartment in the Duke's * palace
Cast in order of appearance
Conductor, Warwick Braithwaite
Producer, Sumner Austin
Chorus Master, Geoffrey Corbett
The Duke of Mantua (tenor) is a Don Juan , from whose attentions no woman is safe. He is indebted for help in his schemes to his jester, Rigoletto (baritone). The courtiers naturally have much reason to hate both Duke and jester. Count Ceprano (baritone) is especially bitter, for the Countess has become an object of the Duke's attentions. Count Monterone (bass) is equally angry on account of the wrongs done to his daughter. Rigoletto jeers at Monterone, who utters a parent's curse upon both Duke and jester.
The Duke is merely amused, but the jester is terrified.
Intimidated by the curse, Rigoletto makes a compact with a bravo, Sparafucile (baritone), whose help is henceforth to be at his service in case of need. Rigoletto now goes into his garden, where he finds his daughter Gilda (soprano). She conceals from him the fact that a young man is hidden on the premises. The young man (though she does not know it) is the Duke. The courtiers, by a ruse, abduct Gilda and carry her off to the palace. Rigoletto discovers what has happened, and, with horror, recalls the curse.
This synopsis covers all of the opera that will be heard this afternoon.
Duke of Mantua:
A Reading by Lydia Lopokova
It is characteristic of the famous ballerina Lydia Lopokova to tire of success and turn to something new. She has danced and acted, and more recently she has acquired a third reputation as a delightful reader on the air.
She was an original member of the ' Band-Box ' Players, who performed in a hall on 57th Street, New York, playing on sharing terms. Out of that small beginning was to grow the famous New York Theatre Guild.
Lopokova said goodbye to ballet after dancing one of her famous roles, the doll Swanilda in Coppelia, for the Vic-Wells Ballet in 1932. The following year she appeared as Olivia in Twelfth Night at the Old Vic, and in 1934 gave a moving performance at the Arts Theatre.as Nora Helmer in A Doll's House. '
