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.
