Pietro Mascagni’s one-act opera is “verismo opera” at its best; filled with passion, vengeance and lush, beautiful melodies made popular among opera novices through the Hollywood blockbuster “The Godfather.”
"Cavalleria Rusticana" tells the story of Turiddu, a soldier who has a knack for engaging in relations with all the wrong women. He has impregnated a village girl, Santuzza while he is having an affair with Lola, the wife of the village carter Alfio. In the end, Santuzza tells Alfio of the affair and he challenges Turiddu to a duel.
