Mascagni: Cavaleria Rusticanaby Andrea Bocelli
Following his recording of Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, chart-topping tenor Andrea Bocelli tackles Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana -- completing the familiar twosome known to opera lovers as "Cav & Pag." Cavalleria Rusticana (Rustic Chivalry) is a tragic story of jealousy and murder set in rural Sicily and features the famous choral "Easter Hymn" and orchestral "Intermezzo," two of the best-known tunes in all opera. Bocelli sings the leading role of Turridu, while Paoletta Marrocu (Santuzza), Enkelejda Shkosa (Lola), Elena Belfiore (Mamma Lucia), and Stefano Antonucci (Alfio) co-star. Steven Mercurio conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Massimo Bellini, Catania.
