SPOTLIGHT ON TRAGEDY

Pagliacci

Music and libretto by Ruggero Leoncavallo
Premiered May 21, 1892, Teatro Dal Verme (Milan, Italy)

The public adores Canio’s clowning—but they’re about to witness the shocking consequences of his rage. Art imitates life (and vice versa) in this opera about the turbulent relationships within a traveling theater troupe. This production of Pagliacci marks Opera Colorado’s expansion from two to three fully staged productions at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House!
