Singing Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly (Puccini): April 13, 21m, 26*

This is Puccini’s heartbreaking love story of betrayal about an American naval officer who marries a young Japanese girl out of convenience only to leave her as she faithfully awaits his return. Set in 1890’s Japan, this is Puccini’s devastating saga of devotion, tradition, and sacrifice, and one of the most beloved operas of all time. Brad Dalton returns as Stage Director; Joseph Marcheso conducts.
