Music by Pietro Mascagni and Ruggero Leoncavallo
In a close-knit community, secret loves lead to fateful consequences.
For the first time in 15 years, Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci return in a gripping double feature seething with the raw passion, jealousy and heartbreak that can only result from a scandalous, small-town affair.
