- Running time210 minutes
Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action in two different time periods in the same Sicilian village.
Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms into a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci.
Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
