The Royal Opera House: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci

The Royal Opera House: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci Movie Poster

Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of lifein a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winningproduction by Damiano Michieletto presentsvividly 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.
