8-Ball Wine Bottle Stopper

For those who love wine and a good game of pool, this unique wine bottle stopper, designed in the shape of a classic 8-ball, is a must-have addition to the bar or billiard room.

Featuring a heavy-duty stainless steel base and solid resin ball, it is made with a thick rubber stopper that guarantees a tight seal.

Novel and fun, it is reflective of the Las Vegas costume and set designs seen in the Met’s modern interpretation of Verdi’s Rigoletto.

  • Made of polyresin, stainless steel, rubber
  • 2.25” diameter

One of the most popular operas in the repertoire, Verdi’s riveting drama was first seen in 1851 at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice. Together with his next two works, Il Trovatore and La Traviata, it formed the basis for the composer’s lasting success. For his new production, director Michael Mayer has moved the action from 16th-century Mantua to 1960s Las Vegas: “I tried to imagine a recent world that captures the decadence of the Duke’s palace, where the participants are in pursuit of power, money, and beauty,” he says. Las Vegas in the ’60s is such a world, where a kind of prankster energy could go bad.”
