Experience the heartbreaking story of Canio, the clown who weeps through his white powder makeup over his wife’s unforgivable betrayal.

– the original ripped-from-the-headlines true-crime thriller opera.

Even if you think you’re “just not into opera,” Pagliacci will change your mind. Set in the deep south of Italy, this is a tale of passion, jealousy and deceit among a troupe of traveling performers that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

You can count on dazzling stage production and a visual feast of costumes with familiar arias and musical highlights that will have you saying, “Oh yeah! I know that one!” And with English translation supertitles above the stage, you’ll never miss a word.

And that’s not all. This performance of Pagliacci will be extra special with acclaimed Greek guest conductor Zoe Zeniodi wielding the baton. Maestro Zeniodi is one of only a handful of female orchestra conductors  in the world, and she’s the first woman to ever conduct for Opera Southwest.
