Rigoletto on the Lake

Opens Feb 16
Giuseppe Verdi’s masterwork – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the breathtaking water stage of Lake Constance, Bregenz. One of Verdi’s most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of a sacrifice and revenge; of a father’s rage and a daughter’s shame. It features several of opera’s best-known arias-including Rigoletto’s passionate denouncement “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,” Gilda’s dreamy “Caro nome” and the Duke’s instantly recognizable “La donna è mobile.” Rigoletto was first performed in 1851 and is the first of the extraordinary “middle-period” trio of Verdi masterpieces that also includes La Traviata and Il Trovatore.

Top Hat (1935)
(99 minutes NR) 1935 Mark Sandrich, director
FREE @ 1 pm on Mar 2
One of the best of the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musicals, Top Hat centers on a typical mistaken-identity plot, with wealthy Dale Tremont (Rogers), on holiday in London and Venice, assuming that American entertainer Jerry Travers (Astaire) is the husband of her friend Madge (Helen Broderick)—who's actually the wife of Jerry's business manager Horace Hardwick (Edward Everett Horton). Complicating matters is Dale's jealous suitor Beddini (Erik Rhodes), whose motto is "For the woman the kiss — for the man the sword." Beddini is disposed of by some last-minute chicanery on the part of Jerry's faithful valet Bates (Eric Blore), paving the way for the happy ending everyone knew was coming from the opening scene.

A Bigger Splash
(106 minutes NR) 1974 Jack Hazan, director
Opens Mar 15
An intimate and innovative film about English-born, often California-based artist David Hockney and his work, honoring its subject through creative risk-taking. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance that dispenses with the then-current narratives of self-hatred and self-pity, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.
