I Pagliacci

Cavalleria Rusticana
Opera in one act by Pietro Mascagni
Libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci adapted from a play and short story written by Giovanni Verga. First performed on 17 May 1890 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome.

I Pagliacci
Opera in a prologue and two acts with music and libretto by Ruggero Leoncavallo
First performed at the Teatro Dal Verme in Milan on 21 May 1892.

In coproduction with the Teatre comunale di Bologna

Sung in Italian with English and French surtitles

Although Mascagni and Leoncavallo never worked together, Cavalleria Rusticana and I Pagliacci  have become inseparable in the operatic world. As each is too court to make up a full evening’s performance, they found themselves on the same bill at the Met one evening in 1895. They have since become inseparable. Composed just two years apart, they were destined to become opera’s twins.
