For Verdi, Victor Hugo’s play Le roi s’amuse was “arguably the greatest drama of the present day”. However many of his contemporaries were appalled by this tale of corpses, jesters, cripples and a king addicted to venal love. This no doubt explains why Rigoletto was Verdi’s second great success and laid the foundation for his emergence as Italy’s leading opera composer.
