Call for CHORUS for Cavalleria Rusticana
What’s the Story? Cavalleria Rusticana contains some of opera’s most stirring melodies and is highly emotional from the start.
Turiddu has returned from military service to find his fiancée Lola married to another man, Alfio. In revenge, he has seduced a girl from the village, Santuzza, but the jealous Lola has since stolen him back, and she and Turiddu are conducting an affair…
This powder keg of passions ignites on Easter Sunday, as Santuzza, driven by despair and revenge, finally betrays Turiddu’s and Lola’s affair to Alfio – a terrible mistake, as it seals the fate of the man she worships.
