Met Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci
David McVicar directs the first new Met production of the popular verismo double bill in 45 years, with Marcelo Álvarez making his company role debut in both leading tenor parts: the unrepentant seducer Turiddu and the clown Canio. Eva-Maria Westbroek will sing the role of Santuzza, the abandoned woman at the heart of Cavalleria Rusticana, with Željko Lu?i? as the chivalrous Alfio. Patricia Racette will star as Canio’s ill-fated wife Nedda in Pagliacci, with George Gagnidze in his first Met performances as Tonio. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads both operas.
