Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana (rustic chivalry) and Ruggero Leoncavello’s I Pagliacci (The Fools) is Italian opera’s most famous double bill. Affectionately known as ‘Cav & Pag’, in just over an hour each, both works are masterpieces of dramatic tension, melodic richness, and an obsession with violent jealousy. Music highlights of Cavalleria rusticana include the glorious Easter Hymn and Intermezzo, and in I Pagliacci we learn the bitter lesson that beneath a clown’s smile his personal pain is hidden. As the opera tells us, regardless of life, On with the Motley.
Come and experience dramatic opera and prepare yourself for the passions of ‘Cav & Pag’.
The production is sung in English with orchestra.
