I Pagliacci and The Stranger’s Tale are two plots combined into a one-act chamber opera. The stories are about a curious homeless man and the people he encounters from a bench in Central Park (Stranger’s Tale) and Canio’s Clown Show (pictured: Jamison Walker, who plays the clown), with elements from I Pagliacci. Blending the two into one story arc results in stirring music and a surprisingly moving narrative.

Presented by First Coast Opera, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10 & 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11 at Flagler College’s Lewis Auditorium, $10 students, $40 general,
