Salt Marsh Opera presents: Pagliacci

October 11, 2019 - October 20, 2019

Salt Marsh Opera is proud to present Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Based on a case of true crime, Pagliacci tells the riveting tale of a man swallowed by feelings of love, betrayal and jealousy.

Set in the late 19th century, actor Canio and his wife Nedda lead a band of traveling carnival players across Southern Italy. Canio may play a clown on stage, but when he discovers evidence of his wife’s affair, it’s only a matter of time before his ferocious anger boils to the surface.

Pagliacci has enamored audiences for years with its masterful balance of humor, romance and violence. Sung in Italian with English supertitles, Pagliacci features one of the greatest tenor arias of all time, Vesti la guibba, so whether you’re new to opera or a lifelong devotee, you’ll find yourself lost in the music.

The production will take place at The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center and the George Kent Performance Hall. Both venues are rich in history and offer guests a unique viewing experience, so pick your venue, choose your date and invite your friends and family to join you.
