An arrangement of a Leoncavallo classic aria for Tenor Recorder & Piano.

A must for your next performance!

"Vesti la giubba" (Put on the costume) is a famous tenor aria from Ruggero Leoncavallo's 1892 opera Pagliacci. "Vesti la giubba" is sung at the conclusion of the first act, when Canio discovers his wife's infidelity, but must nevertheless prepare for his performance as Pagliaccio the clown because "The show must go on".

The aria is often regarded as one of the most moving in the operatic repertoire of the time. The pain of Canio is portrayed in the aria and exemplifies the entire notion of the "tragic clown": smiling on the outside but crying on the inside. This is still displayed today, as the clown motif often features the painted-on tear running down the cheek of the performer.

The 1904 recording by Enrico Caruso was the first million-selling record in history.

This aria is often used in popular culture, and has been featured in many renditions, mentions, and spoofs. Need an anthem fast? They are ALL in my store!
