We are pleased to announce that this winter opera lovers will get to see a double bill at the Paramount Theatre, the popular pairing of Cavalleria rusticana by Pietro Mascagni & Pagliacci by Ruggiero Leoncavallo. Orchestra Iowa musicians will perform.
Stage director Candace Evans will bring to the Paramount Theatre stage these two timeless stories of love and revenge.
The Cavalleria rusticana cast will feature Iowa natives Katharine Goeldner (Santuzza), Janara Kellerman (Lucia) and Teresa Buchholz (Lola). Suzanne Vinnik will sing the role of Nedda in Pagliacci, and former Cleveland Browns football player Ta’u Pupu’a will sing both the Cavalleria rusticana (Turridu) and Pagliacci (Canio) lead roles.
