CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA / PAGLIACCI

Date: Saturday, April 25th, 2015

Time: 12:30 p.m. ET / 11:30 a.m. CT

Run Time: 3 hours 30 minutes (approximately)

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods, but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cavalleria Rusticana) and Patricia Racette (Pagliacci) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

An encore performance of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana / Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones.
