Rigoletto, an opera in three acts, premiered at La Fenice Opera House in Venice, on March 11, 1851. For a long time it was nearly kept off the stage by censors. Today, it is one of the most appreciated Verdean operas, also thanks to the famous aria La Donna e’ Mobile, in which the Duke of Mantua muses upon the fickleness of women.
