A new production of Mascagniâs âfollow-upâ to Cavalleria Rusticana (an opera that cast him reluctantly as the king of verismo) in which we find the composer in a gentler and more inventive mood. Fritz is the archetypal landowner, urbane and cynical. He takes a bet with his friend David that he will never marry â but that was before he met Suzel! The operaâs âCherry Duetâ has become an enduringly popular piece among the public and Fritz is a wonderful example of late Italian romantic opera from one of its most exciting exponents. Sung in Italian with English surtitlesPerformers Eric Margiore (Fritz), Anna Leese (Suzel), David Stephenson (David), Patricia Orr (Beppe), Susan Young (Caterina), Simon Wilding (Hanezo), Robert Burt (Frederico).
