The Royal Opera House

Cavalleria rusticana / Pagliacci DVD (Teatro Real Madrid)

Giancarlo del Monaco’s acclaimed production elegantly intertwines Mascagni’s and Leoncavallo’s well-loved operas, masterpieces which brought new levels of realism into opera through their so-called verismo style. Jesús López Cobos directs a double cast of outstanding talent in a recording filmed with High Definition cameras and with true surround sound.
