Italian opera composer
(1857-1919)




Share this page:

Leoncavallo's fame rests above all on one opera, I Pagliacci. This opera is an excellent example of Italian verismo (literally, realism; a reaction against Wagner and Italian realism, using a story drawn from everyday life). Other examples of Leoncavallo operas: Chatterton; La Bohème; Zazà; and Der Roland.
