Double Bill of Opera

Double Bill of Opera

January 05, 2018

The most popular double bill in all of opera is arguably the combination of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci. From January 8 until February 1, you will have the chance to see the shows at the world famous Metropolitan Opera. Located less than 3 miles from the Broadway Plaza Hotel, the Metropolitan Opera has been delighting audiences with this double bill since 1893. In fact, The Met was the first company to present Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci as a double bill which has since become the standard. The extremely talented Roberto Alagna performs both leading tenor roles in the performance conducted by Nicola Luisotti. Other stand out performers include Ekaterina Semenchuk and Eva-Maria Westbroek as Santuzza and Aleksandra Kurzak as Nedda. Whether this will be your first opera or your fiftieth, seeing the double bill of Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci at The Met is an experience that you will treasure for the rest of your life.
