Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

at Metropolitan Opera

Price from $ 131.20

Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci is opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the verismo action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian setting.

Opera’s indomitable double bill returns in Sir David McVicar’s searing production from the 2014–15 season.

Tenor Yonghoon Lee and mezzo-soprano Violeta Urmana star in Cavalleria Rusticana, the tragedy of ancient codes and illicit love, Sicilian style. In the second half of the pair of verismo potboilers, tenor Roberto Alagna is the murderous clown Canio and soprano Barbara Frittoli is his philandering wife.

Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium. 

Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci is sung in Italian with Met Titles in English, German, Italian and Spanish.
