These two short Italian operas are brought together in a new staging by award-winning director Damiano Michieletto, who sets both operas in a poverty-stricken village in 1980s southern Italy. The Royal Opera’s Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts a cast that includes charismatic Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek, exciting Italian soprano Carmen Giannattasio and the thrilling Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko.
