Georges Prêtre in Cavalleria Rusticana / Pagliacci

Mascagni: Cavalleria Rusticana / Leoncavallo: Pagliacci

1983 NR

Superb casts -- which include soprano Teresa Stratas and the incomparable Plácido Domingo at the peak of his vocal powers -- bring Pietro Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana" and Ruggero Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci" compellingly to life. Performed by the La Scala Orchestra and La Scala Chorus under the baton of conductor Georges Prêtre, the ageless stories of love, nobility, violence and justice feature impeccable singing, acting and staging.
