“In a Sicilian village it is Easter Sunday. Santuzza’s former lover Turiddu is in love with Lola, Alfio’s wife. Santuzza seeks revenge by telling Alfio of Lola’s unfaithfulness and he kills Turiddu in a fight, after the latter has left Santuzza in the charge of his mother. It is Easter morning in a Sicilian village. A sad, anxious girl, Santuzza, is looking for her lover Turridu, who betrayed her and went back to his former fiancée, Lola, who had meanwhile married the wealthy Alfio when he returned from the army. Santuzza tries in vain to win back her lover. Mad with jealousy, she tells Alfio, the cuckolded husband, about Lola and Turridu. At that point, Turridu’s fate is sealed. Alfio provokes him to a duel. After saying goodbye to his mother, Turridu leaves for his fatal meeting.”
Dinner and a Diva: Cavalleria Rusticana is sponsored by Ron Kite and Laura Brookshire.
