The work, which is set to be presented between March 12 and 19, was created in 1992 for the Opera di Roma. Daniel Oren conducts the production with Nino Machaidze and Valeria Sepe singing the role of Nedda, Brian Jagde and Luciano Ganci as Canio, and Amartuvshin Enkhbat and Roman Burdenko as Tonio.

The cast is rounded out by Matteo Falcier as Beppe and Vittorio Prato as Silvio.
