ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE
Playing the Clown & Clowning Around
Enjoy a sensational double-bill performance featuring some of the most beloved music in all of opera. The performance begins with Pagliacci, Leoncavallo’s emotionally intense masterpiece of passion, infidelity and murder with the famous aria “Vesti la giubba,” sung by the clown Canio, a signature role of Utah Opera’s founder Glade Peterson. Next, heartbreak turns into laughter as Utah Opera explores the lighter side of Puccini with Gianni Schicchi. See what unfolds when a man of great wealth dies and leaves behind a secret will, a gang of scheming heirs, and a hilarious mess. Watch, listen, and laugh, where you’ll find comedy in the chaos.
