Pagliaccio serves as the TropeCodifier.
* TheShowMustGoOn: This trope is invoked to provide the first act climax, as Canio has ''just'' discovered his wife's infidelity - but is told to get ready for their show, as the troupe can't afford to disappoint the customers.
* ShowWithinAShow: Canio's and Nedda's performance is layered with DramaticIrony due to the plot being nigh-identical to their "real-life" troubles.

The story revolves around a clown, Canio. One day, Canio's troupe of ''CommediaDellArte'' comes to town, and will put on the peoples' favorite show that evening. When the rest of the troupe go away for a drink, Canio sits by himself, musing how he will not allow himself to be cuckolded and humiliated like Pagliacci, the character he will be playing. Meanwhile, his wife Nedda worries that Canio may find out about her little secret, and her discomfort deepens with the appearance of Tonio, who professes his love. Nedda spurns his advance and mocks at his ugly appearance. Tonio [[AttemptedRape tries to force himself onto Nedda]], but she grabs a whip and strikes him. Tonio swears vengeance.

* MoneyDearBoy: The reason Leoncavallo wrote the opera. He was struggling to come up with a hit, and his publisher didn't have much confidence in his skills as a composer (though his skills as a librettist were evident enough). Then Leoncavallo saw the public was eating this ''verismo'' stuff up, and so he decided to jump on board.

* BasedOnAGreatBigLie -- Leoncavallo claimed the opera was based on a real case that his father dealt with, but there is no corroborating evidence whatsoever.
