Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni and Pagliacci (Clowns) by Ruggero Leoncavallo, are short one and two act operas usually performed together, and are among the most performed operas in North America. Pagliacci is Leoncavallo's only successful opera and in the Marx Brothers film A Night at the Opera, the character Lassparri has just finished performing Pagliacci.

Ridi, Pagliaccio,
sul tuo amore infranto!
Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!

Laugh, clown,
at your broken love!
Laugh at the grief that poisons your heart!

In Ruggiero Leoncavallo opera Pagliacci, the character Nedda is a “Columbina” from the Commedia dell’Arte, a form of improvisational pantomine theater.

As heavily made-up comic female servant, and played opposite a clueless Harlequin character, the “dove-like” Columbina is often the only character with any intellectual oversight of the situation.

The columbine flower, thought to resemble a flock of doves, is symbolic of folly and infidelity in the language of flowers.

The blue columbine is the Colorado state flower.
