Rigoletto and the Karma of Comedy

How far can comics and satirists push hot buttons before they set off a
bomb? A panel of experts explores the boundaries of humour in all its forms,
from commedia dell'arte to shock jock radio to stand-up, in this introduction to Vancouver Opera’s new production of Verdi’s Rigoletto.

In partnership with the Vancouver Public Library, Vancouver Opera presents its award-winning series of free public forums on themes and issues arising from the season’s operas. In these fascinating and lively sessions, esteemed writers, academics, practitioners, artists and other creative thinkers engage in penetrating discussion and dialogue that deepen the connections between the operas’ stories and our lives.

Date: Thursday, February 19, 2009
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: Alice MacKay Room, Vancouver Public Library’s Central Branch
