Rigoletto is one of his best-known. A tangled drama portraying affairs, betrayal, and revenge, Rigoletto is as relevant today as it was when it was written. "La donna è mobile," a canzone sung by a playboy, the Duke of Mantua, about the fickleness of women, gives the audience a moment of comic relief in the midst of a dark tale. The moment of irony, of which the character is blissfully unaware, reveals itself as the womanizer boasts about his superiority to women in the area of stability, even as he plots his next conquest. A surprisingly feminist element in an opera from the mid-nineteenth century, the commentary on gender issues still speaks to audiences today. *LA Guitar Academy's comprehensive online classical guitar program, LAGA Classical, can gradually take you to a level at which you will be able to play this piece and other advanced-level repertoire.
