This undated image released by the English National Opera shows James Gower as Ceprano, center, in a production of "Rigoletto." The British director Jonathan Miller famously reinvented "Rigoletto" for his 1982 staging at the English National Opera, moving it to Little Italy in the 1950s. Inspired by "The Godfather" movies and the film "Some Like It Hot," Miller turned the Duke into a mafia boss and Rigoletto into a waiter at a mob hangout.
