Count Monterone is a significant character in “Rigoletto,” though his role is not extensive in terms of stage time. Monterone’s importance lies in his curse, which he places on Rigoletto and the Duke of Mantua, setting the opera’s tragic events in motion. His curse becomes the central theme around which the plot unfolds, symbolizing the moral and emotional weight of the narrative. Monterone’s character, embodying a wronged father’s righteous anger, adds a layer of ominous foreboding and moral gravity to the opera.
