Karathanos will be making his opera repertoire debut with a new take on two of the great verismo operas –Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci– in his signature poetic yet realistic style. The production features sets and costumes by the acclaimed British designer Leslie Travers, who impressed audiences with his scenography for the GNO’s recent production of Bluebeard’s Castle.
