Royal Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci [ENCORE]

SHOWING FROM
Sun 26 Apr 2020

Royal Opera Chorus

Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

 

Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt.

 

The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy.

 

With thrilling singing and intense drama, ‘Cav and Pag’ distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.

 

Sung in Italian with English subtitles

 

Co-production with Opera Australia, La Monnaie, Brussels, and the Göteborg Opera
