O Lola! Siciliana from Cavalleria Rusticana (Mascagni)

Difficulty level: Advanced | Two pages

O lola! or Siciliana from the famous opera Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni is a particularly successful opera aria: not only is it a beautiful melody full of romance and colour, it also evokes a special feeling of place, in this case, Sicily. What's more, I think it works wonderfully well on the classical guitar - it almost feels like it's been written to take advantage of the tremolo technique, as I do in my video and arrangement.

This arrangement is quite complicated to play, but if you have mastered the tremolo, there will be no great difficulties.
