Read more about the opera Cavalleria Rusticana

The Cav & Pag double-bill was by now a part of the staple diet of opera-goers the world over, and, while Castellano does not seem to have performed Puccini - perhaps difficulty in acquiring the rights? - Mascagni and Leoncavallo offered no such problem.

The cast is from a programme in Aberdeen Central Library. The reviews in the Dundee Advertiser and Courier & Argus both specify the different Alfio, but neither mentions Lucia. Vail sang both Alfio and Tonio in Aberdeen, but only the latter role in Dundee.
