MY GREATEST ROLES VOL.4 - VERISMO OPERA

Info:

Pagliacci (DVD)
"Vesti la giubba"
Ruggero Leoncavallo
Leonard Slatkin
This often-performed short opera uses the play-within-a play device to explore the classic operatic of passion, adultery, jealousy and revenge. The great tenor aria, Vesti la giubba, expresses the anguish of the cuckolded husband who is a performing clown but must make others laugh, even as his heart is breaking. Zeffirelli's production is set in a contemporary urban environment, with fire eaters, children, animals, jugglers and acrobats. Placido Domingo gives a definitive performance as Canio, showing that he is argubly the finest actor-tenor of our time.
