pagliacci

Ruggero Leoncavallo
Season 26 – 2019-2020

Welcome to Pagliacci! One of opera’s most treasured works, Pagliacci will amaze and delight you this evening with its tragic love triangle filled with passion, jealousy and revenge. AWho hasn’t seen the iconic photo of Luciano Pavarotti in his Pagliacci clown makeup? Even if you are unfamiliar with the show itself, you have seen this image and most certainly have heard, Vesti la giubba-sung tonight by Corey Bix, it is one of the most moving arias of all time. The tragic clown smiles on the outside while crying on the inside and with this beautiful aria we can feel his pain.
