"I am one of those travelers who tend to identify places with what was eaten there! Perhaps by trying to develop a little more of the atmosphere of those old-fashioned Christmases at home that we want to re-live, we would do more to recapture them than depending on the elements of a menu to do so. What most of us want is the sense of a family together, sharing in the meaning and merriment both of the holiday season."

Rigoletto is Giuseppe Verdi's three-act opera with a libretto in Italian by Francesco Maria Piave (simultaneous translations are displayed above the spectacular stage to facilitate comprehension). Based on the play Le Roi s'amuse (The King Has Fun) by Victor Hugo, Rigoletto is a Shakespearan-type drama filled with passion, deceit, love and revenge whose main protagonist is Rigoletto, the hunchback jester in the court of the Duke of Mantua.
