    Om Cavalleria Rusticana

    Cavalleria rusticana (en: Rustic Chivalry, Italian pronunciation: [kavalleˈria rustiˈkana]) is an opera in one act by Pietro Mascagni to an Italian libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci, adapted from a play and short story written by Giovanni Verga. Considered one of the classic verismo operas, it premiered on 17 May 1890, at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. Since 1893, it has often been performed in a so-called Cav/Pagdouble-bill with Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo.[1]
