Cavalleria Rusticana

I suffered so with this Santuzza, the rejection of the villagers and even priests and children. It was almost unbearable to watch. I have never felt such a depression from this opera before. I felt that I was in this village that was so closed to kindness. Georgina Lukács was wonderful as Santuzza. Acting and with her voice. Really sad that it is the women who suffer most in such a patriarchal culture. When Turriddu was killed ... 

Innegiamo with Lukács was a great moment of rare beauty and sense of kindness....
