CGO&O stages triumphant "Rigoletto" – Jerome R. Sehulster

As Gilda, soprano Marina Vyskvorkina again demonstraited that she is much more then just a pretty voice or presents. Her Gilda sincerely loved her father and also the Duke, who first woos hair in the guise of a poor student named Gualtier. Without convincing depth to these relationships, Gilda´s self-sacrifice at the and of the opera makes less dramatic impect, and, concequently makes her less of a character, more the canary. Vyskvorkina was ravishing invoice and form. Brava! When she makes the big time remember, that you saw her in Stamford first.
