An Aria A Day #38

‘Questa o quella’
from Rigoletto
by Giuseppe Verdi
Piano Narelle French

15th June, 2020

The Duke of Mantua’s entrance aria from Verdi’s 1851 work tells of the Duke’s debauched antics after meeting an unknown beauty in church. Tenor Iain Henderson chose to perform this piece from ‘Rigoletto’ – the last production he was in with the Glyndebourne Opera House in East Sussex before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. He performs this aria from his parents’ Brisbane home where he will be until he can return safely to the UK.
