About the Show/Event

Information for Cavalleria Rusticana/Aleko at Theatre Royal, Newcastle upon Tyne (Opera or Operetta). Enjoy twice the thrill with this double bill of the ever-popular Cavalleria rusticana and Rachmaninov's rarely heard Aleko. In both gritty blood-soaked dramas, jealous love triangles plummet to violent ends. Cavalleria Rusticana Turiddu and Lola were once lovers; but when he left to join the army, Lola married another man. Although Turridù finds consolation in the arms of Santuzza, his obsessive passion for Lola still burns fiercely. Thus the stage is set for a tale of faithlessness, jealousy and violence, set in a rural community where the church maintains an iron grip on the souls of its people. Aleko - Rachmaninov's first opera is a story of emotion run riot. In the past, Aleko turned his back on the restrictions of conventional society and joined a marginalised community where he fell in love with a young woman, Zemfira. But her love for him has grown cold and she finds solace in the arms of a young lover. Driven on by the unforgiving code of honour he has inherited, Aleko exacts a bloody vengeance for this betrayal. Cavalleria Rusticana - Sung in Italian with English titles. Aleko - Sung in Russian with English titles.
