The public adores Canio’s clowning—but they’re about to witness the shocking consequences of his rage. Art imitates life (and vice versa) in this opera about the turbulent relationships within a traveling theater troupe. This production of Pagliacci marks Opera Colorado’s expansion from two to three fully staged productions at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
Puccini’s heart-racing drama overflowing with power struggles and vengeance. A corrupt chief of police has a cruel ultimatum for Rome’s most celebrated prima donna, Tosca: submit to his lustful desires, or trigger the execution of her beloved. Who will survive this web of betrayal and revenge?
