Maritime Concert Opera brings us Giuseppe Verdi’s great tragedy, Rigoletto.

A curse follows the court jester Rigoletto, whose attempts to keep his precious daughter Gilda out of the hands of the lecherous Duke of Mantua bring tragedy.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

The cast features baritone Andrew Tees as Rigoletto, coloratura soprano Suzanne Rigden as Gilda, tenor Jason Davis as the Duke of Mantua and Lunenburg mezzo soprano Nina Scott-Stoddart as Maddalena.


Maritime Concert Opera is a semi-professional regional opera company based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada which brings in-concert performances of great operas to many communities in Nova Scotia. While we use professional soloists, our chorus and ethos are rooted firmly in our communities.

Suzanne Rigden

Canadian soprano Suzanne Rigden is establishing herself on the International stage with her “remarkable gift for stratospheric coloratura” and “comic genius”, as evidenced in her “dazzling” performance in the Quarter-Finals of the Montreal International Voice Competition 2015 and her summer recitals as a Tanglewood Music Fellow. She recently “stole the stage” in the role of Adele in DIE FLEDERMAUS with Vancouver Opera, where Opera Canada said “Suzanne Rigden brought an agile and graceful coloratura as well as an impish coquettishness to the role of Adele and played her as a delightfully shrewd and feisty survivor to win huge audience empathy and applause at curtain.” Opera World described “her effervescent approach and her strong and confident singing of the most difficult coloratura parts.”
