Boheme Opera NJ is pleased to present for its 29th season in 2018 two iconic verismo operas, Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci and Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana.  Written as a contest entry in 1890, Cavalleria Rusticana won first prize.  It was such a success at its premiere in Rome that the cast received 60 curtain calls.  In contrast, the 1892 premiere of I Pagliacci in Milan was judged very harshly.  Today, these often paired works are continuously performed throughout the world.

Boheme Opera NJ has assembled a national cast of superb voices for these two operatic tales of love and murder.

Kendall Main Stage Theater at the College of New Jersey.
