The cast for Anthony Minghella’s sweeping production also includes Paulo Szot as Sharpless and Elizabeth DeShong as Suzuki, with Pier Giorgio Morandi on the podium.

Madama Butterfly premiered for the first time in Milan in 1904 and is considered one of the true masterpieces of the opera repertoire. It is famous for its wonderful arias, its melodic music, its dramatic theatricality, and its symbolic references to the culture of the East.
