As part of its Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season, the Fugard Theatre presents a screening of Cavalleria rusticana/Pagliacci – an award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto – filmed live at the Royal Opera House.
An award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto, the piece draws together two opera classics in an observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt.
An event description reads as such:
“The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy.”
Venue: The Fugard Theatre, Cnr Caledon & Lower Buitenkant St, Cape Town
Time: 3pm & 7pm
