Met Opera: CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA/ PAGLIACCI (Broadcast in HD)
Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an
evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two
time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the
challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in CavalleriaRusticanaand Canio in Pagliacci. Rae
Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village
square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for
the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav)
and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal
Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
