Win a pair of tickets to see two fantastic operas in one evening, as Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci are screened live in a participating cinema near you as part of the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2015-16.
Antonio Pappano conducts a world-class cast including Eva-Maria Westbroek and Aleksandrs Antonenko in new productions of two intensely passionate operatic masterpieces.
Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci are the greatest operas written by Mascagni and Leoncavallo respectively. They are often performed together as the share common thematic ground – both dealing with all-consuming love and heartbreak that sours to violent jealousy.
In a contemporary twist, acclaimed Italian director Damiano Michieletto updates the action in these new productions to southern Italy in the late 20th century, to a village in the grip of poverty and hypocrisy, where strong passions lurk in the dark.
We have a pair of tickets up for grabs at the cinema of your choice, courtesy of the Royal Opera House, so you too can experience this mixed bill of opera for yourselves. To win, simply enter your details in the form below - good luck!
