Heber Opera presents Verdi’s Rigoletto at Uckfield Civic Centre

Location: Uckfield Civic Centre, Bell Farm Lane, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 1AE

Date: Sunday, May 20, 2018, 6.00 pm


Heber Opera will be presenting Verdi’s Rigoletto at Uckfield Civic Centre on Sunday, May 20.

The story is one of a father’s possessive love, a daughter’s innocent love and a man’s selfish love all of which culminate in an act of revenge that goes horribly wrong.

Along the way to a heartbreaking climax there are lighter moments and everything is covered from sex, lies, kidnapping and a vengeful curse to a murderous revenge that backfires because of the machinations of a dastardly brother and sister.

Regular supporters of Heber Opera will know it aims to present opera in a dramatic and approachable way and the company hopes Rigoletto will be no exception.

Heber Opera was founded in 1989 by Roger Clow, primarily with the aim of performing English operas that have, for one reason or another, been neglected.

As it has grown, the company has taken on more ambitious and better known works, but in specially prepared chamber versions that are presented in English.

Performing in the round ensures that the full dramatic flow of every opera is accessible to the whole audience. The performances have an immediacy that is unmatched in any other approach – the opera is truly close enough to touch.
