PRESENTATION

Searching at the same time for a realistic and tragic tale, Leoncavallo remembered a true story that his father, the magistrate, had told him - about an actor having assassinated his wife in an fit of jealousy. An ideal news item to use as topic for his opera.

Canio, the leader of a troop of actors, kills Nedda, his wife and Silvio, her lover out of jealousy. As of the prologue, the spectators are informed that the story which will be played in front of them is inspired by real facts, which the author wants to represent without fiction.

In this opera of a prologue and two acts, Leoncavallo mixes reality and theatrical fiction skilfully. What the troop of Canio plays in the evening is offstage. For Canio, the situation is difficult. He tries to dominate it. But the laughter of the spectators pokes at his jealousy. Reality erases the fiction. He will find his wife. he wants to make her speak. But, Nedda obstinately refuses to reveal the name of her lover. He kills her. Silvio, the lover, runs. Canio stabs him in turn. And thus the comedy of life ends.
