Music and Lyrics by Ruggiero Leoncavallo
Canio is jealous, but he has reason to be. His wife Nedda is having an affair, and he just might lose her. And curiously, the very play they are presenting — in their commedia dell'arte troupe — is all about deception and cheating spouses. Pagliacci is what is called a "verismo" opera which is all about a kind of in-your-face OTT emotion.
