Opera Night at the BPL: Traveling Troupes in Pagliacci

BLO brings the story of one such “commedia dell’arte” troupe to the stage this September with Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci.

A traveling troupe comes to town, enlivening the community while bringing excitement, drama, and, ultimately, tragedy to the stage. Musicologist and guest speaker Laura Stanfield Prichard explores the history of these troupes, their impact on the communities they visited, and BLO’s first carnival-style operatic experience.
