Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci (2 CD)
This complete live recording is taken from the Met's historic Saturday afternoon radio performances and is newly remastered from the original April 11, 1964, broadcast. This brand new multi-disc set represents its first official release on CD.

In Cavalleria Rusticana, the first half of opera's most famous double feature, Eileen Farrell sings the role of the ill-fated Santuzza in what would be her last Met broadcast. Pagliacci stars Franco Corelli as Canio, the clown who must make his audience laugh while he himself is consumed with despair, in what would be the famous tenor's only Met broadcast performance in the role.
