New Premiere in Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci
The season is ahead for Dinara, 2019/2020, brings new premiere in main role as Nedda in Cavalleria rusticana/Pagliacci in well known The Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. Written by Ruggero Leoncavallo and Pietro Mascagni.
The duo Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana is one of the most famous double bills in the history of opera. But they were written independently. Cavalleria rusticana came first, its hugely successful premiere in 1890 doubtless an influence on Leoncavallo. His Pagliacci in 1892 was another triumph. The two works, each undeniable masterpieces of the verismo tradition of realism, share dramatic concision, melodic richness and an obsession with violent jealousy.
Damiano Michieletto’s production was an Olivier-Award-winning hit when first presented in 2015. He sets both operas within the same village, allowing characters from one piece to reappear in the other and offering theatrical realism within visuals that are modern and yet timeless. The production was widely praised at its premiere, and summarized by the Financial Times as ‘a gripping evening all round’.
Packed with love, infidelity, betrayal, jealousy and murder, these two pinnacles of the Italian opera repertoire have it all. With a world-class star cast.
Performance is presented in two acts.
Conducter is Henrik Nánási.
