classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south
Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The
award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the
fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable
jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that
bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo
arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy. With
thrilling singing and intense drama, ‘Cav and Pag’ distils into one wonderful
night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.
