Rigoletto cast members perform at CPUT


The very talented cast of the opera Rigoletto performed live at the CPUT Bellville Campus Auditorium on the 5th of February.

The students and staff who attended demonstrated their support and passion for the classics. “The performance was brilliant I really enjoyed the music,” said Patsy Samuels one of the Marketing and Communications staff members.

In addition to performing, the cast also discussed the opera’s music and its background. After the explanation, the floor was opened for questions regarding the production. This was a great opportunity for students who appreciate opera to increase their knowledge and understanding.

Many students are not familiar with this kind of music so it is important to expose students to opera. Some students may have talent and the performance could inspire them to pursue classical music further.

Rigoletto was written by Verdi and tells of kidnapping and deceit among Italian nobles. The current production places the characters in a modern urban setting. The opera will be staged at the Joseph Stone Theatre in Athlone from the 22 February to 1 March 2008. This is another opportunity for CPUT students to attend the production.
