This momentous opera was composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo and
is the only work of his that is still widely performed. Pagliacci debuted at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan, Italy in 1892
and was conducted my a man of equal importance and historical relevance, Arturo Toscanini. Toscanini was one of the most acclaimed
musicians of the late 1800's and early 1900's and was revered for his intensity, photographic memory, and perfectionism. He
acted as the musical director of La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Orchestra in New York City, as well at the New York Philharmonic
Orchestra. Arturo Toscanini rose to fame in the United States after he became the first musical director of the NBC Symphony
Orchestra from 1937-1954 and conducted many radio and television broadcasts of operatic and symphonic efforts. Toscanini famously
disliked Pagliacci, but that did not stop the opera from transferring to New York in 1893, where the Metropolitan Opera staged
the inaugural performance to public and critical acclaim. This success and subsequent revivals of Pagliacci alongside its
sister work Cavalleria Rusticana has cemented the operatic portrayal of the dual-sided nature of emotion and performance as
one of the greatest works in history. Pagliacci chronicles the life of Canio, a professional clown, who laments his duty to
laugh everyone's troubles away on stage while, in his personal life, he fears that his young wife is betraying him with a
handsome soldier. When he is no longer able to separate his personal turmoil from his on-stage persona, the consequences are
dire. Experience the drama and intensity for yourself and purchase Pagliacci tickets
