MASCAGNI Cavalleria Rusticana
LEONCAVALLO Pagliacci

Presented by Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre, the 2017 opera production features a two-for-one deal with the operatic double bill, PAGLIACCI and CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA. The jealousies and passions of a troupe of strolling actors in Pagliacci (or “Clowns”) pairs with Cavalleria Rusticana’s emotional story of love and betrayal in the Sicilian countryside.
