PAGLIACCI

Opera by Ruggero Leoncavallo performed by Teatro dell’Opera di Roma

This famous opera was staged by Maestro Franco Zeffirelli widely recognised as the world’s most gifted and original stage directors. The Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma are conducted by Paolo Olmi. Pagliacci is based on a true story about the tragic irony in the life of a theatre clown, Canio who makes people laugh while his own life falls apart. When Canio, sung by star tenor José Cura, discovers from Tonio (Marco Vratogna), an ill-intentioned fool, that his wife, Nedda (Davinia Rodriguez), an actor in his company, is about to elope with a lover, Silvio (Gëzim Myshketa), Canio becomes insanely jealous. Life mirrors theatre, but takes a violent turn into reality.
