Notes & Reviews:

This production of 'Cavalleria Rusticana' from 1968 was staged by Giorgio Strehler, and Herbert von Karajan conducted the Orchestra e Coro del Teatro alla Scala. Based on a drama by Giovanni Verga, 'Cavalleria Rusticana' relates the lives and passions of simple Sicilian peasants. Director Ake Falck brings the beauty of Sicily to this production by means of outdoor shots of its splendid landscapes during the overture and intermezzo. Combined with a lavish set and costumes by Luciano Damiani, these images intensify the feeling of a sultry southern landscape as a background to the inflamed passions and violence of the action.
