Cavalleria Rusticana (Pietro Mascagni) & Pagliacci (Ruggero Leoncavallo).

Two short operas, sung in Italian. Recorded in 2015.

Starring Jonas Kaufmann.

Cavalleria rusticana: Passions are running high in a Sicilian village on Easter Morning. Animal herder Alfio is inflamed with jealousy when he learns of his wife’s affair with the young gallant, Turiddu. The two men resort to a duel with knives, and, despite the protestations of Turridu’s mother and his heartbroken lover, Santuzza, the day ends in bloodshed.

Pagliacci: A touring troupe of actors arrives at a village in southern Italy, to perform their play, ‘The Clown and Columbine’, which tells the story of an unfaithful woman, played by real-life adulterer, Nedda. For Canio, her jealous husband in life and on stage, the irony is too much to bear, and the performance comes to a tragic end.
