Leoncavallo’s Zazà at the Barbican – 27th November 2015


A rare opportunity to hear an all-star cast in the neglected work by Pagliacci composer, Leoncavallo, Although Zazà was a runaway success following its Milan premiere in 1900 it has generally neglected in the past century. Here the acclaimed Ermonela Jaho (Mimi, Angelica, and Manon at the Royal Opera House) takes on the role of the Parisian music hall singer, Zazà, whose conscience is pricked when she discovers her lover, Milio, is married.  Maurizio Benini conducts leads the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Singers and  a wonderful cast, who will have just spent a week recording the work for Opera Rara.
