Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci

First heard in 1892, Pagliacci is one of the defining examples of verismo, an operatic genre that aimed for a realistic approach to storytelling. The opera has become almost inseparable from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, a stylistically similar work that preceded it by two years and served as a musical and dramatic model for Leoncavallo. Combining the two as a double bill—affectionately known among opera lovers as Cav/Pag—became standard practice shortly after the Met introduced the idea in 1893.
