Verismo: Opera on Location's creative reimagining of Cav and Pag comes to Sheffield

Verismo - Opera on Location

Sheffield's only professional opera company, Opera on Location, makes a return to indoor performance this year with a double bill of Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. What is described as 'a creative reimagining of one of the most iconic double bills in opera' will take place at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio, a church turned professional studio space, with performances from 25 to 27 August 2022.

Directed Ashley Pearson, the production will link the narratives of the two operas and transports them to a World War II setting. The music director is Aleksandra Myslek.

Full details from the Opera on Location website.
