Last night I went to see Rigoletto...

Opera North were doing the wonderful Verdi opera at the Leeds Grand Theatre and it was a fantastic night out. It's a dark story which led it to be banned when it was first performed. Richard Mantle, General Director at the Grand says in the programme "Rigoletto is an opera of immense vitality with an unforgettably vivid score and a story capable of turning both our hearts and our stomachs."

But why do all the great operas have to end with someone dying?
