ROH Opera - Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

Event Cinema starts promptly at the time advertised.

Damiano Michieletto’s Olivier Award-winning production of Mascagni and Leoncavallo’s one-act operas is a thrilling, cinematic experience.

Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana (Rustic Chivalry) and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci (The Players) are today Italian opera’s most famous double act, but they were written independently. Cavalleria rusticana came first, its hugely successful premiere in 1890 doubtless an influence on Leoncavallo. His Pagliacci in 1892 was another triumph. The two works, each undeniable masterpieces of the verismo tradition of realism, share dramatic concision, melodic richness and an obsession with violent jealousy.

Antonio Pappano conducts Lise Davidsen and Jonas Kaufmann in a new production of Beethoven's only opera.

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph.

Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime. The music is transcendent throughout and includes the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s impassioned Act II cry in the darkness and vision of hope. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.
