Placido Domingo - Pagliacci - Ruggero Leoncavallo
New York, NY (August 28, 2012) - Kultur is proud to announce the DVD release of Placido Domingo - Pagliacci - Ruggero Leoncavallo available September 25, 2012.
Leoncavallo's often-performed short opera uses the play-within-a play device to explore the classic operatic themes of passion, adultery, jealousy and revenge.
The great tenor aria, Vesti la giubba, expresses the anguish of the cuckolded husband who, as a performing clown, 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, showing that he is arguably the finest actor-tenor of our time, gives a definitive performance as Canio.
Recorded live at the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Opera House in November 1997.
