Cavalleria Rusticana

Pietro Mascagni


The love, betrayal and revenge of real people stretched to the limits of human feeling by real life. Intense and beautiful music.

Great pathos and dramatic tension flow from Mascagni’s achingly beautiful score in this quintessential verismo opera about the fateful events that take place on an Easter Sunday under the Sicilian sun. After Turiddu returns from the military to find betrayal, hot-blooded pursuits of love and jealousy spread, leading to the point of no return with inescapable acts of honour under the stunned gaze of the townspeople and the bewildered anguish of the young Santuzza. 
Our new production will remember that between 1951 and 1961, more than 300,000 Italians emigrated to Canada, primarily from the South of Italy, many of whom settled in ‘Little Italy’ on College St

In the original Italian with English surtitles. Fully staged with piano accompaniment. Running time is approximately 1hr 20min with no intermission.
