I'm enjoying the fantastic production of Pagliacci at the Everyman Palace. Our first night was last night. 9 musician/actors playing a reduced score, all by memory and moving about the stage with the singers. We are gods and godesses of the theatre, surrounded by the clowns/circus troupe and a whole gang of chorus.

Here is a promo clip

The costumes are stunning, by the amazing Lisa Zagone.

Presented by the Everyman and Cork Operatic Society in association with Cork Midsummer Festival, Barabbas and Cork Circus
Comprising a multidisciplinary company of high calibre artists drawn from the professional and local community sectors, Pagliacci at the Everyman will be a unique and exciting staging of Leoncavallo’s classic commedia opera.
Featuring outstanding singers, actor-musicians, clowns and circus acts along with a full chorus and orchestra, this boldly ambitious production takes place in a contemporary Cork funfair in which a fantastical travelling troupe of clowns and musical performers materialise to enact their play-within-a-play drama.
This production will turn the Everyman – street entrance, foyer, hallway and auditorium – into a pulsating and dynamic fairground environment in which audience and artists joyfully co-mingle.
