Details

Zanetto is a sweetly moving, gorgeously scored miniature to open our double bill. It is a long way from the gritty world of Cavalleria rusticana, Mascagni's storming debut in opera; this was a composer who ranged happily across many genres in his musical journey, and Zanetto is another curiosity in his canon. It tells of an encounter between a beautiful courtesan and a young wandering minstrel, which leads to love, sacrifice and pain. The music is gentle and resonant, and there are just two singers. New Production. Sung in Italian with English surtitles
