About the work

Love, betrayal and revenge all play out in a quiet village in a rural corner of Italy. Emotions run high as fidelity is tested and hearts broken in this tale that will resonate with you for the powerful raw depictions of everyday life, in all its heartbreaking and beautiful complexities. In a cast that showcases the world class talent of Western Australian artists, Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana will be paired with Pagliacci, often referred to as ‘Cav & Pag’. This classic one act pairing has often been celebrated as the birth of verismo, a style of music drama depicting the crude passions of everyday people rather than the exploits of kings, queens and gods.
