Baritones, Too!


Bohemian National Hall morphs into a mini opera house tonight and Sunday for Opera Cleveland's production of Rigoletto. Sung in Italian, the Verdi classic is about a hunchbacked court jester who tries to even the score with his boss for wooing the hunchback's daughter. The plot then unfolds with abductions, assassins, and bodies found in potato sacks. If you're not up on Italian, don't sweat: The troupe — accompanied by the Cleveland Women's Orchestra — will scroll subtitles on a projection screen over the stage. The curtain lifts on Rigoletto at 7:30 tonight and 3 p.m. Sunday at Bohemian National Hall, 4939 Broadway Avenue. Tickets are $15 ($5 for kids). Call 216-441-2822 or visit
Fri., Nov. 16, 7:30 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 18, 3 p.m., 2007
