When a commedia dell’arte troupe arrives in a small Italian village, they are greeted by cheers of welcome. Makeup and costumes transform actors from commoners into clowns, but the infidelity of one wife and the fury of her husband cannot be concealed. Comedy turns to tragedy when jealousy rages, lovers are revealed, and the curtain comes down on murder.

This classic Italian “slice of life” opera opens Seattle Opera’s 2024-25 season with unmatched music and drama! Learn more at Seattle Opera and get tickets when they go on sale in summer 2024.
