The Celestial Opera Company presents its upcoming production of the double-bill of two one-act operas, Mascagni’s "Cavalleria Rusticana" and Leoncavallo’s "Pagliacci." Often paired together, the operas are two of the most famous examples of Verismo (a post-Romantic operatic tradition that expounds Italian country life). The operas will be fully staged, costumed, and feature a small orchestral ensemble. The operas will be sung in Italian with supertitles in English. The performances will feature a pre-opera talk one hour before curtain time.
