Rigoletto – 'La donna è mobile'

Extracts | Verdi

Act III. Here, the Duke of Mantua (Stefan Pop) sings one of the most famous tenor arias in all of opera. ‘Can’t live with them, can’t live without them’ is the Duke’s cynical message, warning that woman’s fickle nature makes her untrustworthy before conceding that no man feels fully happy without a woman’s love.

This performance is no longer viewable as video-on-demand for rights reasons but other material about the production is still available here.
