Description

Two tragic events take place in an Italian village: a vengeful duel and a murder fuelled by suspicion. What pushes a jealous mind to such extreme deeds?

When first presented, Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Ruggiero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci laid the foundations for the rise of verismo, realism in opera.

Damiano Michieletto’s keen direction combines these two opera classics in an ingenious way. The award-winning production, which teems with hidden love, jealousy and revenge, was an instant success after its premiere at the Royal Opera House in London in 2015.
