Madama ButterflyMay 30, 2014
Set in Japan in the early 20th century, Puccini’s most deeply-felt and imaginative opera follows the poignant story of love between a United States naval officer and a beautiful geisha. Characterized by the clever integration of traditional Japanese themes with soaring Italian operatic tradition, Madama Butterfly is an unrivaled masterpiece.
Presented in Italian with English supertitles, this fully staged co-production by the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra and the Connecticut Lyric Opera features an international cast of singers accompanied by a full orchestra conducted by Maestro Adrian Sylveen.
This event will be presented off-site at the Naugatuck Valley Community College Fine Arts Center.
