After the unabashed romance of his L’amico Fritz, Silvano sees a return to the hard-hitting drama of Mascagni’s celebrated Cavalleria rusticana. A passionate seafaring tale, the plot centres on a doomed love triangle that ends in disaster, death and despair. Mascagni revels in this drama and the score, which includes the Barcarolle famously used in Scorsese’s Raging Bull, displays both his signature singing melodic lines and a spicy chromaticism that echoes much of Wagner’s work.

A glittering line-up of soloists – including acclaimed soprano Emma Bell as Matilde – joins The Orchestra of Scottish Opera, chorus and Music Director Stuart Stratford to give Silvano its long-overdue Scottish premiere.
