Cavalleria Rusticana 1989Scottish Opera

Read more about the opera Cavalleria Rusticana

Opera-Go-Round toured a medium-scale production of Cav and Pag with 27 performances to Mark Dorrell's piano accompaniment sandwiched between half-a-dozen at each end of the tour in an arrangement for a sixteen piece band (of principals from the excellent Scottish Opera Orchestra), conducted by Robert Dean. The chorus stayed at home.

For once Cavalleria was played in a completely different style from Pagliacci, as well as being kept until after the interval. Did it make a difference?
