Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" & Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana"

Robert Carsen directs and Lorenzo Viotti conducts in Amsterdam
Back
{{ message.content }}

It's the most famous double-feature in the history of opera: Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, followed (in a reversal of the traditional order) by Mascagni's rural drama Cavalleria Rusticana. Both works tell a tale of love and murder in the style of Italian verismo. In Pagliacci, the line between theater and reality is blurred. Only when it's already to late does the on-stage audience realize that the play within a play has become deadly serious. For Robert Carsen's ingenious Amsterdam staging, Lorenzo Viotti conducts the two operas at his future artistic home: beginning in the 2021/22 season, he will be chief conductor of the Dutch National Opera. 

A coproduction of François Roussillon et Associés and De Nationale Opera.
