These two pinnacles of Italian opera, Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana have it all – love, infidelity, betrayal, jealousy and murder. Both are classic examples of verismo operas that dramatise the lives of ordinary people: Pagliacci fuelled by the tension between everyday life and the aesthetic world of the stage, Cavalleria rusticana juxtaposing unbridled passion with profound faith. Performed by a brilliant cast including tenor Brandon Jovanovich, soprano Ailyn Pérez, mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili and tenor Brian Jagde with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Lorenzo Viotti, the Robert Carsen’s widely acclaimed 2019 production plays a masterful game of theatre-in-theatre, avoiding clichés and calling into question the nature of reality.
