Rae Smith (War Horse) designed the "moodily atmospheric" 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the "doomed vaudeville troupe" of Pagliacci in the Met Opera's production of Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci — MET Opera that you can see a simulcast screening of the operas today at 12:30 p.m. at area theaters (an encore screening takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday). Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cavalleria Rusticana) and Patricia Racette (Pagliacci) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium. Ticket prices vary.
