A double bill of operas by Pietro Mascagni and Ruggero Leoncavallo

Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana / PagliacciBuy Tickets

The Met Opera presents a double bill of operas - Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni and Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo. This exciting new production is created by Sir David McVicar. Both operas are set in Sicily, though in different time periods, and the innovative set design has been undertaken by Rae Smith (War Horse).

In Cavalleria Rusticana, jealousy trumps love in a 19th century village when the romeo Turiddu chases after the beautiful Lola, much to the dismay of his sweetheart, Santuzza. Jumping ahead to the 1950s, the leader of vaudeville acting troupe defends accusations that his wife is being unfaithful with one of his actors - but has he spoken too soon?

Marcelo Alvarez will perform the tenor role in both operas. He performs alongside Eva-Maria Westbroek in Cavalleria Rusticana and Patricia Racette in Pagliacci.
