The five most popular Verdi operas certainly include the heart-rending drama about the jester Rigoletto, who unwittingly brings about the death of his own daughter.
'Slender and graceful, soprano Lisette Oropesa was simply world-class as Gilda, with flawless emission and generous top notes, crystalline up to high E', wrote Bachtrack.
