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.

** The Penguinís favorite opera is Pagliacci. While the story of killer clown also appeals to the above rogue, Pagliacci is the story of a man betrayed by the woman he loves who then flies into a murderous rage when confronted by the truth. [[DisproportionateRetribution No wonder]] Mr. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Yandere Cobblepot]] canít help singing along.
** The matching notes of the lyrics, "Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto!" were invoked by {{Queen}} in the opening of their 1984 song, "It's A Hard Life".
