Thank you Gudrun for your information about the fotos and for your review, and thank you and Zadra for expressing what I also felt. Simon’s Rigoletto was deeply touching and with that unique artistic quality in singing and acting, which only he is able to give to his audience. Never ever I was so caught by the story of this so well known opera. I was in tears over Rigoletto’s tragedy and also there were tears of joy that Simon had such a brillant comeback in this role. I also adored how he and Gilda interacted. Never I have seen the father-daughter relationship so heartbreaking than with Simon Keenlyside and the wonderful Albina Shagimuratova.
