Sir David McVicar directs the first new Met production of Pietro Mascagni’s popular verismo double bill in 45 years: Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci, both with Marcelo Álvarez as the male lead. Eva-Maria Westbroek and Patricia Racette also star.

Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the operas, both set in Sicily – one in a village square circa 1900, the other at truck stop in 1948.
