Royal Opera ChorusOrchestra of the Royal Opera HouseTwo opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy.With thrilling singing and intense drama, Cav and Pag distils into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.Conductor Daniel OrenDirectorDamiano MichielettoSet designerPaolo FantinCostume designerCarla TetiLighting designer Alessandro CarlettiCAVALLERIA RUSTICANAMusicPietro MascagniLibrettoGiovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido MenasciTuridduYonghoon LeeSantuzzaLiudmyla MonastyrskaAlfioDimitri PlataniasLola Jos Maria Lo MonacoPAGLIACCIMusicRuggero LeoncavalloLibrettoRuggero LeoncavalloCanioRoberto AlagnaTonioDimitri PlataniasNeddaAleksandra KurzakSilvioBogdan BaciuBeppe Mikeldi AtxalandabasoCo-production with Opera Australia, La Monnaie, Brussels, and the Gteborg OperaSung in Italian with English subtitlesRun time: 180 mins
