The basis of Ruggero Leoncavallo's opera on a true story of the murder of the young actress her husband - the director of the troupe, who could not cope with his jealousy. Directed Alexandrova this moving story of love and jealousy got one of the most original and modern interpretations.

Comedy and tragedy parody and laugh at each other, the usual humdrum situation in the first act is replaced extravaganza of costumes and colors in the second. The theater, which has become the meaning of life and the way the characters - generous splashes on the audience ...
