Looking for a date night that’s not the same old dinner and a movie? Treat your partner to the Portland Opera’s performance of Verdi’s Rigoletto. This tale of the sad clown will have you laughing, and probably maybe even crying a bit with heartfelt performances from Rigoletto (Stephen Powell) and his daughter Gilda (soprano Katrina Galka). Baritone Reginald Smith, Jr. brings it big time as Count Monterone. Plus, the Opera is allowing drinks in the theater this year! Book a sitter, because the performance is 3 hours and 30 minutes long with 2 intermissions—think of it as almost four hours without having to change a diaper.
