Rod Serling, creator of the hugely successful Twilight Zone, extended his influence by fashioning a highly charged and powerful indictment of the dehumanizing effects of giant corporate America.

Since firing at this high executive level is out of the question, Briggs must be forced to resign and Ramsey is using Staples to help with the dirty business of accomplishing this.

Great Performances at the Met

Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening) makes his Met debut with a new production of Verdi’s Rigoletto. The new staging moves the opera’s tragic events from a decadent 16th-century Italian court to the glitzy, depraved setting of the Las Vegas strip circa 1960. Polish tenor Piotr Beczala sings the Duke, an amoral lounge singer whose entourage includes the world-weary comedian Rigoletto, sung by Serbian baritone Željko Lučić. German soprano Diana Damrau sings the role of the innocent Gilda, Rigoletto’s daughter and the victim of the predatory Duke. Michele Mariotti conducts his first company performances of the Verdi masterwork, which features one of the most famous arias in all of opera, “La donna è mobile.”
