Opera on Location are known for bringing opera to varied locations across Sheffield and South Yorkshire. Join them as they mark their return to indoor performances with the premiere of Verismo.
The show is a reimagining of one of the most iconic double bills in opera: Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci.
This new interpretation of these popular one-act operas will see the Pagliacci theatre troupe in the final preparations for their upcoming production of Cavalleria rusticana. During the first run-through of their new production, the cast allow their personal feelings to take control. The lines between theatre and reality, truth and fiction, are blurred as love, anger and jealousy overwhelm the cast.
Starring Canio and Nedda Caruso as Cavalleria's tragic lovers, audiences will be transported to the home front of World War II in a rollicking musical extravaganza.
