The Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with a screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of Cavalleria Rusticana on Wednesday, June 10 at 6:00 p.m.
Two opera classics are drawn together in this wonderfully observed re-creation of life in a south Italian village as a travelling theatre visits and emotions erupt. The award-winning production by Damiano Michieletto presents vividly the fast-moving, shocking events brought about by secret love and uncontrollable jealousy. The music is full of Italianate melody in the great choruses that bring the villagers together in celebration and revelry, alongside the solo arias and tense confrontations that provoke violence and tragedy. With thrilling singing and intense drama, “Cav and Pag” distills into one wonderful night out, the enduring appeal of Italian opera in its most familiar form.
This production of Cavalleria Rusticana is a co-production with Opera Australia, La Monnaie, Brussels, and the Göteborg Opera.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours 10 minutes, including one intermission. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
