Two dramatic, tragic, and separate operas have been performed together side by side for years just out of habit. Cavalleria
Rusticana is one act by Pietro Mascagni to an Italian libretto written by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci, adapted
from Giovanni Verga’s short Sicilian play. Pagliacci is a prologue and two acts composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo and
first premiered at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan in 1892.
For centuries the operas Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci has been performing together, partly because they are both
tragic tales and partly because they both opened around the same time. The show’s lead performer must take on two
roles in one night, as does the rest of the cast, proving that any performance done by any direction will be extraordinary
and unforgettable. The shows performing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York this March through April will be something
extraordinary, so get your Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci
