Pietro Mascagni

Cavalleria rusticana

Mascagniís verismo opera Cavalleria rusticana offers an unfortunate account of love, seduction, and treachery. Driven by warranted desire, Turrido pursues Lola, his former betrothed, down a dangerous path that leads him to a deathly duel.

Ruggero Leoncavallo

I Pagliacci

Featuring one of the most beloved operatic arias in the repertoire, I Pagliacci tells the tragic tale of a traveling troupe torn apart by passion, jealousy, and rage. Experience Leoncavallo’s heart-breaking story of Canio, the clown who weeps through his white powder makeup over his wife’s unforgivable betrayal.
