Based on a true story, Ruggero Leoncavallo’s thrilling 1892 opera, Pagliacci relates the tragic irony in the life of a theatre clown, Canio who makes people laugh while his life falls apart. When an ill-intentioned fool tells Canio that his wife is about to elope with a lover, he becomes insanely jealous and the plot veers violently into reality. Canio is sung by José Cura, one of the world’s greatest interpreters of the role. Staging is by Franco Zeffirelli, widely recognised as the world’s most gifted and original director of opera and theatre. The orchestra and chorus of the prestigious Teatro dell’ Opera di Roma is conducted by Maestro Paolo Olmi. Thursday and Saturday, March 15 & 17, at 7:30pm.
