Opera Omaha’s ‘Pagliacci’ Part 1
October 15th, 2018
Opera Omaha opens Pagliacci this week, with music and libretto by Italian composer, Ruggero Leoncavalo.
Featuring an interview with performers, Jonathan Burton and Leah PartridgeÂ
It wouldnâ€™t be an Italian opera without romance gone wrongâ€”in this case for Canio, wife and fellow actor, Nedda, and Silvio. For Canio, life on and off the stage are starting to become a little too similar.
In addition to failures in his marriage, Canio suffers from a life reexamined. Itâ€™s the sort of dissonance that comes only from time, like a worn out record.
Leoncavalloâ€™s Pagliacci, performed by Opera Omaha, is next week, Friday October 19th at 7:30pm and Sunday the 21st at 2:00pm at the Orpheum Theatre. For more information or tickets, visit OperaOmaha.org.
