Opus Arte: OA 1210D. “Damiano Michieletto directs these new productions of Cav & Pag (as they are affectionately known.) This Double Bill consists of 2 one act operas - Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni (Rustic chivalry prem. 1890), which is traditionally paired with Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci (The Clowns prem. 1892.) The symphonic Intermezzo from Cavalleria rusticana, has figured in the sound track of several films. Among the cast members are Eva-Maria Westbroek, Aleksandrs Antonenko and Dimitri Platanias. Antonio Pappano conducts the Royal Opera House Orchestra and Chorus in this DVD from 2015.”
Footnote: These are two of the most famous examples of "Verismo" in Italian opera, (meaning "realism", from Italian vero.) It was a post-Romantic operatic tradition, mostly of stories about the bourgeoisie. Andrea Chénier and Tosca are operas to which the term may also be applied.
