These are two operas with a strong story, beautiful music and a performance with emotion.
A Sicilian village on Easter Sunday, Turiddu has become engaged to Santuzza, but he carries on his affair with Lola, his former lover. Santuzza tries to persuade Turiddu to leave Lola and return to her, but he violently rejects her.. Enraged Santuzza tells Alfio, Lola’s husband, about Lola’s affair with Turidda. His honour offended, Alfio kills Turiddu in a knife fight.
Sung by Violetta Urmana and Vincenzo La Scola et al.
Tonio, Beppe, Canio and his wife Nedda form a company of itinerant performers. One afternoon before their show opens, Tonio lets Canio know that his wife is seeing Silvio, a local man, who plans to escape with her that night. Taking advantage of the play’s plot, a one act farce about infidelity and jealousy, Canio tries to make Nedda reveal the name of her lover. It infuriates Canio so much that he pulls out a knife and stabs her on the stage.
