Opera Composers

Ruggero Leoncavallo

Ruggero Leoncavallo

(1857–1919)

 

 

 

This Italian composer is heavily identified as being an opera verismo composer in the style of Puccini...where the story and music becomes infused.

His I Pagliacci (the Clowns) is a staple of today's operatic repertoire and is often presented as half of a double bill with Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana".
