The show “Cavalleria rusticana” – original title in Italian – is a drama in one act with music composed by Pietro Mascagni and book by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci.
Based on a story by the writer Giovanni Verga. The opera, which premiered on May 1980 in Rome at the Teatro Costanzi, is considered one of the most important classical operas. Therefore, Cavalleria Rusticana is among the most popular operas, occupying the 27th position in the ranking for the top 100 most performed operas in history. Its renown comes not only from its virtuosity and emotion, but also from being included in films such as The Godfather III or Raging Bull.
Because Cavalleria Rusticana is a short performance (about one hour long), it is commonly performed as a double feature. This will be the case at the Arena di Verona, where the opera will be part of a two-and-a-half-hour performance called Cav/Pag, together with Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo.
And we know the leading singers of this great opera: on the one hand the tenor Roberto Alagna and on the other hand the soprano Aleksandra Kurzak, in the roles of the protagonists of Mascagni and Leoncavallo.
