This figurines represent one of the protagonists from the Italian opera “I Pagliacci”.

“I Pagliacci” is a two acts “dramma per musica” by the composer Ruggero Leoncavallo (1857-1919), first performed 21st May 1892 at the Teatro dal Verme, Milan, conducted by Arturo Toscanini.

The protagonists are:
(tenor), head of a troupe of traveling actors, in the play: Pagliaccio;
Nedda (soprano), his wife, in the play: Colombina;
Tonio (baritone), member of the troupe, in the play: Taddeo the clown;

The play is located in the small Italian town of Montalto in Calabria during the "Ferragosto" (the catholic Italian holiday of the Assumption in mid-August) in the 1860s. PAGLIACCI background:
Fascinated - and irritated - by the success in 1890 of Pietro Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana, Leoncavallo decided to write and compose a short, realistic opera himself. In the autumn of 1890 he offered the libretto to the Milan publisher Edoardo Sonzogno - who had Mascagni under contract, too - and was told to go ahead with the composition.

Exceptionally individually hand-molded masterpiece figurines.
The quality and attention to detail, in these collectible ceramic figurines, is apparent in each piece and will not disappoint even the most discriminating of tastes.
