Ruggiero Leoncavallo (March 8, 1857 - August 9, 1919) was an Italian opera composer.

He was born in Naples and educated at the conservatory. After some years spent teaching and in ineffective attempts to obtain the production of more than one opera, his I Pagliacci was performed in Milan in 1892 with immediate success; today it is the only work by Leoncavallo in the standard operatic repertory. The next year his Medici was also produced in Milan, but neither it nor Chatterton (1896)—both early works—obtained any favour, and it was not until La Bohème was performed in 1897 in Venice that his talent obtained public confirmation. Subsequent operas by Leoncavallo were Zazà (1900), and Der Roland (1904). In all these operas he was his own librettist.

Leoncavallo died in Montecatini.
