Pagliacci/Cavalleria Rusticana

Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci and Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana are classic examples of verismo operas, full of love, infidelity, betrayal, jealousy and murder. Director Robert Carsen is no newcomer to Amsterdam, having celebrated successes with Dialogues des Carmélites and Carmen and having set the stage for the DNO’s 50th anniversary gala.
