2015-2016 Season Calendar

October 10-11, 2015

Opera San Luis Obispo proudly celebrates its 30th anniversary with the evocative double bill, Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, both set in rural southern Italy in the 1880s. Cav opens during the simple Easter celebration, while Pag spotlights a performance stop on the route of a touring gypsy clown troupe. Each opera represents Italian verismo at its best, bursting full-throttle with sweeping melodies, gripping passion, love, jealousy, betrayal and revenge. This Citywide Arts Collaboration continues our tradition of expansive grand opera production, featuring full orchestra, chorus, ballets, period sets and costumes and an internationally acclaimed cast of opera singers.
