Singing Canio in Pagliacci (Leoncavallo): November 14m
Covering Canio: November 17, 18m, 20, 25m, 30, December 2m

The saga of a jilted lover and a jealous husband, Pagliacci tells the tale of Canio, the leader of a traveling commedia dell’arte troupe. Canio is the clown who must laugh, and make others laugh, while masking his grief after learning that his wife Nedda has betrayed him with another man. In the end, art meets tragedy in a rage of passion and jealousy.
