An exhilarating 80-minute torrent of an opera, Cavalleria rusticana is a classic tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. A massive hit with audiences at its premiere in 1890, Cavalleria has been a mainstay in the repertory ever since. This vivid new production is set in 1962 Sicily, and features stunning aerial acts that adorn and elucidate the music and story of the opera. With a star-studded cast of singers and an orchestra conducted by Paul Schrage, audiences craving high art with a generous dose of thrill and beauty will find themselves immersed and enraptured by this can’t-miss showing of Pietro Mascagni’s masterwork.
