Arena di Verona

A world-famous award-winning director and one of the few Italians of his generation who has managed to unite Cinecittà and Hollywood with important international successes, Gabriele Muccino is debuting on one of the world’s most thrilling prestigious stages with the opera direction of Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci, the inaugural double bill of the 2020 Opera Festival at the Arena di Verona.

The new production of Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci, which is opening the season on 13th June, will therefore feature another date not to be missed on 8th August: in fact, tenor Roberto Alagna and soprano Aleksandra Kurzak will be the couple performing in the roles of the protagonists of the Mascagni and Leoncavallo masterpieces, for a great gala evening.
