Neapolitan Festival - Pagliacci - St. Petersburg Opera
Tuesday, October 21 7:30PM
It's festival time in Italy and a host of performers are in town for the celebration! First we will hear the Neapolitan songs and Italian arias and be entertained with theatrical suprises. Then, a comedy troupe will perform a story about a clown, Pagliaccio. The show takes a turn for the dramatic when the clown's wife is caught cheating. Jealousy and passion bubble to the surface as the shocked villagers witness a gut wrenching murder. Are the actors still in character or is this real life? The show must go on!
