The Metropolitan Opera Live 19/20: Madama Butterfly

New York comes to WGC..

Conductor: Pier Giorgio Morand
Starring: Hui He, Ana María Martinez, Paulo Szot
Running time: 3 hours 12 minutes

The title character of Madama Butterfly—a young Japanese geisha who clings to the belief that her arrangement with a visiting American naval officer is a loving and permanent marriage—is one of the defining roles in opera. The story triggers ideas about cultural and sexual imperialism for people far removed from the opera house, and film, Broadway, and popular culture in general have riffed endlessly on it. The lyric beauty of Puccini’s score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterfly timeless.
