Also Le Spectre de la Rose and La Rose Malade
A combination of two ballets and one opera, all conducted by Daniel Harding. Le Spectre de la Rose was conceivied for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes and for Nijinski in order to fill a gap in 1911 when Nijinsky was still putting the finishing touches to L'Après-midi d'un Faune. La Rose Malade to music by Mahler was choreographed by Roland Petit for the great Russian ballet dancer Maja Plisetskaja. This production of Cavalleria Rustiana by Pietro Mascagni (it is the 150th anniversary of his birth this year) is the Mario Martone version, with the Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko and the soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska.
