Synopsis

Cavalleria Rusticana (by Mascagni) and Pagliacci (Leoncavallo) are two short Italian operas that are frequently staged together. Kentish Opera is delighted to be presenting them again --- we last performed these dramatic works in 2001.

Cavalleria Rusticana is literally “rustic chivalry” and its one act contains such much-loved gems as the Easter Hymn and the gorgeous Intermezzo.

Pagliacci means “Clowns” and it tells the story of a travelling troupe of actors, performing their tragic play about a sad Clown, to some enthusiastic villagers. But the troupe has its own internal hostilities …

Robyn Sevastos, our Musical Director, will again be conducting the soloists, chorus and orchestra, and Terry John Bates will be directing the drama. These two productions are a must-see for all opera fans, and indeed all music-lovers.

Tickets: Starting at £25.00 - Standard, £10.00 - Concessions.
