Cavalleria rusticana | pagliacci

We're thrilled to bring a stunning new set for our 2023–2024 season opener. Cavalleria rusticana takes place in a beautiful Sicilian landscape lush with orange trees and greenery. Set in the same village, Pagliacci‘s landscape has been ravaged by the horrors of war; much like it's characters. Experience this classic double bill like never before.
