Love, jealousy, hatred and betrayal – here no one is safe from grand emotions: in ‘Cavalleria rusticana’ Turiddu is unable to renounce his former lover Lola. Her husband Alfio deals with him, turning a Sicilian village into the scene of a tragedy. Problematic relationships and the ensuing complications also set the tone in ‘Pagliacci’ as jealousy erupts among a group of travelling actors. While they are performing a romantic drama with a deadly conclusion, Nedda’s affair with the young peasant Silvio is revealed – and suddenly reality and the theatre start to merge before our every eyes.
