Opera Saratoga opens strongly with ‘Rigoletto’: Opera Saratoga opened its season at the Spa Little Theatre with Verdi’s “Rigoletto.” It was a strong production with everything at a high level…Chuck Hudson provided the expert direction. -Geraldine Freedman, The Daily Gazette

Spontaneous applause…That’s what happened repeatedly Friday at Spa Little Theater, when Opera Saratoga opened its 51st season with one of the world’s favorite operas: Guiseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto.”… In Hudson’s production, spandex skirts and bad suits and ankle boots announced a contemporary setting… with neon lights spelling out the tawdry surroundings where Rigoletto met the assassin seemed to pin the action to the mid-20th century. -Judith White, The Saratogian
