The action of these two operas takes place across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village.

Marcelo Álvarez plays the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci, conducted by Fabio Luisi. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cavalleria Rusticana) and Patricia Racette (Pagliacci) play the heroines.

Encore performance on Saturday, June 8, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. local time at select theatres.

Studio: The Metropolitan Opera
