This opera, composed by Giuseppe Verdi, is about Rigoletto, a jester in the court of the Duke of Mantua. He has a hunch-back and he's rather unattractive, but he's good at his job of humiliating the courtiers for the amusement of the Duke. Of course, someone dies and poor Rigoletto wails that the curse has come to pass. It's complicated.
