Rigoletto - Charity Gala


Rigoletto hates his job, his boss and his colleagues. He feels trapped by his disability. He can’t get over his wife’s death. The only things that keep him going are his love for his only child Gilda and his hate for the rest of the world. But how long can he keep his child safe in the poisoned world that he has helped to create?
