    Baritone Hunter Enoch, a native of Paris, Tennesee, took on some great Verdi baritone music at the “Viva Verdi!” concert. The role of Rigoletto, Verdi’s grotesque, tragic, clown is distinguished partly by the amazing dramatic monologues the character delivers in recitative. After receiving the corpse of who he thinks is his old boss, the Duke of Mantua, this downtrodden court jester exults: “See me now, world: Here is a fool, and here a great man! He lies at my feet, what joy! My suffering is avenged at last. The river shall be his coffin, and this sheet his shroud...into the water, into the water!” But then a tell-tale bit of offstage music indicates that Rigoletto’s vengeance has not hit its target...

    Hunter Enoch as Rigoletto; Brian Garman conducts the Seattle Opera Young Artists Program Orchestra.
