Mascagni’s masterpiece, Cavalleria Rusticana (“rustic chivalry”) takes place on Easter morning as Turiddu sings of his love for Lola. Turiddu was once engaged to Lola and has returned from military service to find that she has married another. Heartbroken, Turiddu seduces Santuzza which inspires jealousy in Lola who begins an adulterous affair with Turiddu. Naturally.
