Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci

For Opera San Luis Obispo

In 2015, the Hind Foundation granted $75,000 to Opera San Luis Obispo’s 30th Anniversary production of opera's most famous double feature "Cavalleria Rusticana" and "Pagliacci" (Cav/Pag). The organization’s business model of cross-cultural participation by local artist groups continued with this citywide arts collaboration between the Central Coast Children's Choir, Civic Ballet San Luis Obispo, CORE Dance Company, Deyo Dances, Opera San Luis Obispo, Resonance Vocal Ensemble, and Studio @ - Ryan's American Dance. Over 175 artists, musicians, and production staff locally were involved in the production. Cav/Pag was staged by Heather Mathews and musically directed and conducted by Dr. Brian Asher Alhadeff, the Artistic Director and Conductor of Opera San Luis Obispo.
