Verdi: Rigoletto

This new production of Rigoletto turned out to be one of Christoph von Dohnányi’s rare forays into Italian opera, but the Greek bass Kostas Paskalis and German soprano Ursula Koszut went on to reprise their roles as the humiliated court jester and his daughter for stagings in Berne (1972) and Vienna (1976).
