I went to see Rigoletto with my family. Just being inside the Metropolitan Opera Building was a huge experience. The elegant winding stairs in red velvet offering a backdrop to the nicely dressed opera guests. The music of Rigoletto is of course wonderful, and the "updated" storyline, where the story is set in Vegas and the main characters are immigrants and gangsters instead of an Italian Duke and his courtiers, works okay and adds a humorous twist. Absolutely worth a visit- even if it's just a tour of the building.
