Hall of Fame 2012 - the top 10 operas
10. Cavalleria Rusticana – Mascagni
1. Cavalleria Rusticana, featuring the brilliant Intermezzo and Easter Hymn, claims the No. 1 spot in the top ten operas, charting at No. 29 overall. Despite composing 13 other operas, none of Masccagni’s other works even made a dent in last year’s chart – perhaps it’s a one-hit-wonder, but it’s well worth a listen so you can make your mind up for yourself.
