The Lycoming College Music Department presents a concert production of Pietro Mascagni’s one-act opera Cavalleria Rusticana. The performance will feature the Lycoming College Community Orchestra and a vocal ensemble of students, area professionals, and community members, under the direction of Dr. William Ciabattari. Libretto by G. Targioni-Tozzetti and G. Menasci

“Cavalleria Rusticana” (“Rustic Chivalry”) is a tragic tale that unfolds on Easter Sunday in a Sicilian village, circa 1900. Santuzza’s former lover, a soldier named Turridu, is in love with Lola, the wife of the prosperous carter, Alfio. Santuzza seeks revenge by telling Alfio of Lola’s unfaithfulness – a decision that leads to fateful consequences. This passionate story is brought to life by Mascagni’s poignant score, which includes the beautiful ‘Easter Hymn’ and ‘Intermezzo’.

Tickets will be available at the door.
