Verdi's «Rigoletto», produced by Tatjana Gürbaca, is one of the most successful new productions of the Homoki directorship. The trade journal Opernwelt 2013 chose Gürbaca as the «Producer of the Year». In her modern interpretation, she concentrates totally on the action of the protagonists and dispenses with any opulent sets or cos-tumes. Alexandra Kurzak as Gilda and Saimir Pirgu will be experienced in the main roles. George Petean will assume the part of Rigoletto, Fabio Luisi will stand at the podium of the Philharmonia Zürich..
