Stephen Costello Continues Rigoletto with Canadian Opera Company

This February, Stephen Costello continues his run in Toronto singing as the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto. Called the “best American operatic tenor the world has right now” by the Toronto Star, Costello performs engagements on February 1, 4, 6, 9, & 21. Stephen Lord conducts the Christopher Alden production, in which Costello’s Duke performs alongside Anna Christy’s Gilda and Roland Wood’s Rigoletto.

The Duke is one of the roles on which Costello has most decisively made his mark. In the Metropolitan Opera’s groundbreaking Vegas staging of Rigoletto, which saw the Duke modeled after Sinatra, the New York Times praised his “bright tenor that … was perfectly suited to [the] character.”
