The most famous double act in the history of opera: Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci
When first presented, Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Ruggero 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.
