Take a journey to Sicily’s hot-blooded world of seduction and jealousy in two classic operas visually linked by impressive set design.

Strong Italian temperaments are at play under the baking sun of Southern Italy in these two performances about hypocrisy and murder. Studded with catchy melodies, both operas are in musical consonance with Puccini works such as Tosca and La bohème. Critically acclaimed set designer Mia Stensgaard has created extraordinary sets for the performance evocative of the torrid Sicilian heat. If you’ve never been to see an opera before, this two-opera performance is a very fine place to begin.

Many new singers are featured in the cast list, including Stig Andersen, Johan Reuter, Anne Margrethe Dahl, Niels Jørgen Riis and Audun Iversen, and the young star conductor Joana Mallwitz leads The Royal Danish Orchestra and the Royal Danish Opera Chorus.

Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci is performed in Italian with Danish supertitles.
