Detroit Opera House
Giuseppe Verdi's Rigoletto runs through May 22 at the Detroit Opera House. The opera is sung in Italian with English subtitles and is about 2 1/2 hours long. It is filled with great talent, costumes and music. The Opera House itself was originally opened in 1922 in the Italian Renaissance style with a lot of crystal, gold leaf, frescoes and marble. Get there early to check out the beauty of the building, before enjoying a great performance.
