Get a free preview of the Seattle Opera’s production of “Rigoletto” by Giuseppe Verdi at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4 at the Bainbridge Public Library.

Hugely popular since its Venice premiere, Verdi’s tale of a deformed court jester caught in a web of corruption runs the full emotional gamut in true operatic fashion. The iconic melodrama boasts an action-packed plot, memorably complex characters, and a hit parade of brilliant music.

The preview is presented by opera aficionado Norm Hollingshead and is funded by the Friends of the Library.
