CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA / PAGLIACCI
LIVE IN CINEMAS TUESDAY 21 APRIL 2020
DAMIANO MICHIELETTO'S OLIVER AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTION OF MASCAGNI AND LEONCAVALLO'S ONE-ACT OPERAS IS A THRILLING, CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE.
Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life
in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly 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.
