-- A Double Bill! Mascagni's CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA is a tale of rustic chivalry. Follow four people's rollercoaster lives, where the triangles of love, jealousy, and bitterness lead only to death. Pure verismo! And Puccini's sentimental one act opera SUOR ANGELICA. A noblewoman, bearing a child out of wedlock, is forced to join a convent. Learning her child has died, she takes poison. Too late she realizes her sin, and begs the Madonna for forgiveness.
