CELEBRATING 29 YEARS OF BRINGING YOU THE BEAUTY AND EXCITEMENT OF OPERA
 
 

In a close-knit community, secret loves lead to fateful consequences.

Cav & Pag (as they are affectionately known) are as full-on and intense as Italian opera gets.

Each opera packs in much high drama and powerful music in just over an hour. Cavalleria Rusticana’s highlights include the glorious Easter Hymn and Intermezzo. Pagliacci features one 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. He pitifully dwells on his situation while getting ready to take to the stage. He must act the fool on stage while dying inside.

The 1940’s-set production featured a recreation of an Italian American neighborhood in Trenton. The brutal honesty & passion of verismo opera brought in record audiences to enjoy this production of Cav & Pag.
