Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana

The premiere of Cavalleria Rusticana in May 1890 at Rome’s Teatro Costanzi was a spectacular success that made the 26-year-old Mascagni internationally famous and marked the birth of the verismo genre, an operatic style that emphasized dramatic realism and everyday characters over elaborate romantic plots. Cavalleria is frequently performed in a double bill with Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, a pairing that was first introduced by the Met in 1893.
