CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
About the Show/Event
Information for Broadcast - ROH: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci at Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough (Broadcast). Broadcasts directly from the National Theatre, Royal Opera House and other famous theatres around the world onto a big screen. Broadcasts may be of live performances or "Encore" screenings of previous famous productions recorded "as live". We are currently showing screenings of most NT productions plus most screenings at Cineworld cinemas and theatres for which we cover other live performance listings. These two short Italian operas are each regarded as the composers' masterpiece. Award-winning director Damiano Michieletto brings them together in a new staging, setting both in a poverty stricken village in 1980s southern Italy, where the Mafia has a hold. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts a cast that includes charismatic Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, exciting Italian soprano Carmen Giannattasio and Aleksandrs Antonenko.
