THE MET LIVE IN HD: MADAMA BUTTERFLY

Madama Butterfly Main

Description

Puccini's Madama Butterfly tells the heart-wrenching story of a young Japanese geisha who clings to the belief that her new husband, a visiting American naval officer, will stay faithful and return to her. In this live transmission from 2016, soprano Kristine Opolais stars as Cio-Cio-San, with tenor Roberto Alagna as Lt. Pinkerton, in Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production. Karel Mark Chichon conducts. With English subtitles (on-screen).
