Swansea City Opera at Bridlington Spa

Swansea City Opera at Bridlington Spa


Sung in English, two one act operas.

A perfect pairing of tragedies, Swansea City Opera is setting these two tales of passion, jealousy and death in 1930's fascist Italy. Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci (Cav & Pag) have been all but inseparable on the opera stages of the world since the Met first presented them as a double bill in 1893. The overwhelming success of Cavalleria was crucial in launching the verismo movement, inspiring other composers (iincluding Leoncavallo) to turn to stories and characters from real life. Each opera lasting just over an hour, is packed with high drama and powerful music. Cavalleria rusticana's highlights include the glorius Easter Hymn chorus and orchestral Intermezzo. Pagliacci features on of the greatest of all tenor arias, 'Vesti la giubba', in which the clown Canio has just learnt that his wife is having an affair, and must act the fool on stage whilst dying inside. Everyone who enjoys heart rending drama and pageantry in opera will love Cav & Pag.
