Cortagiani from Rigoletto

I was digging around on U-Tube and found this fantastic setting of one of the most beautifully depressing scenes ever written in the opera world. Here, Rigoletto begs for his daughter back - his fatherly love mixed with his craziness and confusion makes for a heart-wrenching scene. Almost as depressing as when he kills the daughter for whom he begged.
