Ruggiero Leoncavallo (23 April 1857 - 9 August 1919) was an Italian composer.
Life and work: He won worldwide fame with his opera I Pagliacci (Bajadser) from 1892.

He also had some success with his La Bohème, who could not stand up against Giacomo Puccini's opera on the same subject.

In the spring of 1892 met Puccini and Leoncavallo in the small Swiss village Vacallo. Leoncavallo offered Puccini a text he had written after Henri Murger's novel Scènes de la Vie de Bohème. Puccini declined the offer, but have probably been a little suspicious of the offer, which perhaps because Leoncavallo did not consider the text of particularly valuable and not even wanted to compose it.

Puccini's edition was a great success, while Leoncavallos was doomed in advance and barely played since. He also wrote operettas and songs, of which La Mattinata has become popular.
