DIRECTOR’S NOTES

In a historic toy museum, a clumsy guard announces the closing time to the public. Only one visitor remained, in the Renaissance toy room, intent on staring at a miniature ducal palace and whispering to antique toys in dance costumes, which seem to respond magically to him, like faithful courtiers.  How is it possible? Do the toys respond? Is it true or is it a nocturnal enchantment? The visitor is a fascinating and extremely rich collector, convinced that he is the Duke of Mantua.  He is willing to pay any amount to complete his collection with the most precious piece: the beautiful Gilda.  He wants her but doesn't find her.  The unfortunate guard cannot believe his ears when, on the other side of the ducal palace, an old and clumsy toy-romper, Triboletto, begs him to help him protect his daughter Gilda at any cost.  Which side are you on? Who really needs his help? Will the guard be able to bring father and daughter together and save the museum's collection?

 Since the opera is a contested drama between two men - deformed Rigoletto, torn, with the mask of an imbecile, and a funeral music, and the Duke of Mantua - I imagined a night guard and a pleasant, positive visitor, just like the world-famous arias of the Duke of Mantua.  The story will be able to unfold through a series of antique toys, spoken and manipulated by both interpreters, and divided into two families: bullies and oppressed.  In conclusion, a dramaturgy of fantastic toys that relies on two very human paladins of opposite stands, protecting the ears and eyes of an audience so small from impacting with the desperation of Rigoletto, who admirably oozes from every assigned Verdian note, or to have to see it ... hypothesis just as frightening, being a metamorphic and mysterious figure ... a buffoon, hunchback ...
