Ruggero Leoncavallo was an exponent of the verismo movement in Italian opera. His masterwork I Pagliacci is often performed in a double bill with Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana. l Pagliacci is said to be based on a real-life tragedy, and has a brilliant Italian flavour and intriguing storyline. Cavalleria Rusticana, a story about love and revenge in a Sicilian village, brought instant fame to its composer.
