Opera fans' favorite double billing, Pietro Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Ruggero Leoncavallo Pagliacci, are filled with passion, vengeance, and lush, beautiful melodies – opera verismo at its best. Daniel Harding conducts the orchestra and chorus of La Scala with the late Salvatore Licitra as the lead in Cavalleria Rusticana and José Cura as the lead in Pagliacci.
