Event cancelled: Cancelled: Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci
Date and timeWed 5.5.2021, at 7:00 p.m.
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 Michiletto’s keen direction combines these two opera classics. The award-winning production teems with hidden love, jealousy and revenge.
