Pagliacci Jon Vickers

Jon Vickers, Joan Carlyle, Cornell MacNeil, etc.. The intensity blazes just as high in Pagliacci, with the incandescent Jon Vickers as Canio, the clown who must go on stage knowing his wife (Jeannette Pilou) is planning to run away with a younger man.. THE chief interest of the current ''Pagliacci'' performances at the Metropolitan Opera is the return of Jon Vickers as Canio, the role of his Met debut a quarter-century ago..
