Notes & Reviews:

'Pagliacci' is Leoncavallo's much loved short opera of romance, jealousy and revenge among a group of traveling players. This recording features an outstanding cast, conducted by Steven Mercurio, and starring international superstar Andrea Bocelli in the role of the clown Canio and rising star Ana Maria Martinez as the doomed Nedda. Known the world over as "Cav & Pag," 'Pagliacci' is often paired with Mascagni's 'Cavalleria Rusticana' and performed together in one evening. These short operas are two of the best-loved and most frequently performed operas. 'Pagliacci,' the first of the two releases on Decca is presented with full texts and translations. 'Cavalleria Rusticana' (also featuring Andrea Bocelli) will be released in early 2007.
