April 11 – Opera Night

Opera Night

Featuring Cavelleria Rusticano and Pagliacci
April 11, 2010

“Cav and Pag” are two short operas that are frequently performed together.  They both take place near the turn of the 20th century and feature the everyday life of countryside Sicilians, as opposed to royalty or deity.  Cavelleria Rusticano is written by Pietro Mascagni (based on a play by Giovanni Verga), and Pagliacci is by Ruggero Leoncavallo.

Performances take place between meal courses and tables are arranged to give everyone a view of the performers. Whether you are an opera enthusiast or first-timer you will enjoy a night of great music and dining right in the heart of Lansdale!
