Experience the ninth season of the Metropolitan Operaâs Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD in cinemas nationwide. The double bill broadcast of Mascagniâs Cavalleria Rusticana / Leoncavalloâs Pagliacci will be presented live on Saturday, April 25 at 12:30 p.m. ET / 9:30 a.m. PT, followed by an encore presentation in select cinemas on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. in all time zones. Operaâs most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods, but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Ãlvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci.
