Love and betrayal reigns in these often-paired favourites from the romantic period of opera. Giancarlo del Monaco's acclaimed new production in Madrid elegantly intertwines Mascagni's and Leoncavallo's well-loved masterpieces bringing new levels of realism into opera through their so-called verisimo style. Jesus Lopez Cobos directs a double cast of sublime talent featuring Vladimir Galouzine and Maria Bayo.
