Event description




Behind the mask. Between these walls. The Innenraum. 

The second production of our 2023 season, Leoncavallo's Pagliacci premiered in 1892, amidst a wave of verismo aiming to bring the arts closer to their audiences, exploring subjects and themes disarmingly interwoven with their surrounding world. Similarly, this is a Pagliacci reimagined for our world today; haunting, incisive, determined.
