For those interested in opera but having a hard time buying the high-flying, opulent style associated with the baroque period, the late-19th century may be your era. The verismo style sought a greater realism than previous opera, including depictions of everyday life and common people. Cavalleria rusticana focuses on love and tragedy among a group of commoners in a Sicilian village on Easter morning. The music is impassioned and gorgeous. Note its famous "Intermezzo Sinfonico".

Enjoy the opera as it was meant to be
It surpassed my expectations .
I enjoyed listening to the opera much more after this explanation .
The historic comparison of Mascagni conducting to the more modern recordings is excellent as well showing the difference interpretations of the same piece.
