Based on a real life murder case, this thrilling and gritty opera boasts Ruggero Leoncavallo’s most amazing score, one of the greatest tenor arias of all time, and a story to surpass any modern day soap opera.
As we follow the lives of a troupe of strolling actors, real life crosses into the imaginary until their jealousies, obsession and illicit passions mirror the evening’s performance with tragic effect.
Irrational Theatre brings this freshly adapted and accessible production to Southwark Playhouse for one night only.
Sung in Italian with abbreviated subtitles.
★★★★ “Well sung – this is about as accessible as the art form gets and it has to be said, only opera’s reputation for being difficult, demanding or posh stands in the way of anyone wishing to dip their toe in and try the temperature.” Broadway World
