Deadline for NIU Annuitants’ ‘Rigoletto’ trip is Friday

Seats are still available for the Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association third trip in its Lyric Opera series. This trip is to see the production of “Rigoletto” on March 1. Deadline for payment is Friday.

The group will leave DeKalb at 11 a.m. by deluxe motorcoach. Departure points are at NIU and Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center. A post-opera dinner at Lloyd’s Chicago, 1 South Wacker, across from the Lyric, is included. Curtain time is 2 p.m. A lecture will be given at 1 p.m. at the Lyric.

Cost includes round-trip transportation, dinner, admission to the Lyric Opera (seats are on the main floor), pre-opera comments by NIU Professor Emeritus Clark D. Neher, all taxes and gratuities. The fee for the trip is $195 per person.

“Rigoletto,” by Giuseppe Verdi, is the story of the Duke of Mantua, a serial seducer, and Rigoletto, the despised court jester. Only one person brings Rigoletto joy – his innocent daughter Gilda, whom he keeps behind locked doors and guards with his life. But no one’s safe in this godless place. The Duke is hunting again – and this time he’s got Gilda in his sights.
