Notes & Reviews:

'Pagliacci' may be the most completely compelling short opera in the repertory and owes much of its impact to a brilliant story based, it is said, on true life and told through the device of a play-within-a-play. The action is set in Calabria in the deep south of Italy where the jealousies and illicit passions of a troupe of strolling actors precisley intersect with the play they are performing - to a both touching and tragic effect.
