The court jester Rigoletto, a spiteful hunchback, revenges his many years of humiliation on others by ruthlessly aiding vice. He is the main procurer of young girls to the dissolute Duke of Mantua. But “divine justice” befalls Rigoletto, while his daughter becomes the sacrificial lamb. Protecting and cherishing his daughter, he hopes to receive forgiveness. When he loses her, he is enlightened, but, alas, it’s too late.

At a ball in the palace of the Duke of Mantua, the court jester Rigoletto, a hunchback, taunts Count Ceprano, whose wife is the target of the Duke’s wandering eye. Count Monterone, whose daughter the Duke has seduced, pushes his way in and calls a curse on the Duke for destroying his daughter’s honour and Rigoletto for making jest of it. Through trickery, Rigoletto’s daughter, Gilda, is carried off to the Duke to suffer the same fate as Monterone’s daughter. Rigoletto plots his revenge through use of the assassin Sparafucile and his sister Maddalena. But when a court jester plots revenge, who will have the last laugh? Things do not go as planned for Rigoletto as the curse comes back to haunt him.
