Cavalleria Rusticana is a one-act opera considered one of the classics of verismo opera, which follows the story of Turrido and his love affair with Lola, a woman that he was engaged to before joining the army.

Pagliacci is an opera based on the true events of an 1865 murder. The opera was instantly successful with the public, and was first performed as a double-bill with Cavalleria Rusticana on December 11, 1893 at the Metropolitan Opera.
