Stage Director Giancarlo del Monaco (the son of the famed dramatic tenor, Mario) flat-out rejects the notion that Cavalleria rusticana or Pagliacci should be performed with anything except each other. In an interview included on this Opus Arte Blu-ray release, del Monaco emphatically notes that these operas represent “the fundamental diptych of realist theater;” that they are “two sides of the same coin.” As with many other productions, del Monaco presents Pagliacci ’s Prologue before the Mascagni work, Tonio appearing in the midst of the audience to underscore that the verismo evening ahead is meant to connect to everyone’s real-world experience. A seamless integration of the two dramas is further highlighted when Turridu’s lifeless body is driven off the stage just as the first chords of Pagliacci are sounding.

Plácido Domingo accomplishes the rare feat of singing both lead roles on the same night in opera's most popular double-bill. James Levine conducts the tenor in Franco Zeffirelli's classic production, opposite the superb singing actors Tatiana Troyanos, Teresa Stratas, and Sherrill Milnes.

As comparably short operas Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci are often billed together, but seldom is the lead tenor making his double role debut as Turiddu and Canio on the same evening. At the 2015 Salzburg Easter Festival Jonas Kaufmann did just that – to rapturous praise. Universally hailed as a coup for Kaufmann, plaudits were also showered on Philipp Stölzl for his innovative compartmentalized staging which included live video projections while referencing the era of black-and-white movies.

In 1939, as a 15-year-old student in Athens, Maria Callas made her stage debut in the demanding role of Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana. Five years later she sang it professionally with the Greek National Opera Company. In 1953, when she was already a star - shortly to record Tosca - Tullio Serafin enlisted her as the last-minute replacement for an indisposed colleague at the sessions for Mascagni's one-acter at La Scala. The result was a recording in which full-blooded verismo was raised to new interpretative heights.

Cavalleria Rusticana: Magnificently sung, subtly played and dramatically acted… The passion of Sicily, fanned into a bonfire by one of the world's most brilliant conductors and great cast (New York Post).
Pagliacci: An interpretation of exceptionally strong emotions and artistic quality (Il Giorno). Vickers is outstanding, delivering 'Vesti la giubba' with unusual sensitivity and admirable restraint. Kabaivanska and Glossop are also impressive (New York Times).

Salzburg Easter Festival presents boasting cast led by the star tenor Jonas Kaufmann (in his role debut as Turiddu) under the uber-conductor Christian Thielemann. As both a stage and film director, Philipp Stölzl reflects in his productions on how cinema usurped opera’s place in the popular imagination of Italy a century ago. Dividing the stage into six segments and mixing live video into the picture, he references the era of black-and-white movies.

This stage opus by Giancarlo del Monaco combines two separate and ostensibly unrelated operas - Pietro Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana and Ruggero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci - into a single production, by virtue of their shared verismo style. Jesús López-Cobos directs for the stage; Violeta Urmana, Dragana Jugovic and Marco di Felice co-star in the Cavalleria portion, while Vladimir Galouzine, Maria Bayo and Carlo Guelfi co-star in the Pagliacci segments. The Chorus and Orchestra of the Teatro Real, under the leadership of musical director Jesús López-Cobos, provides musical accompaniment. Nathan Southern.
