Met Opera 19/20 – Madama Butterfly (TBC)

Anthony Minghella's vividly cinematic staging of Puccini's tale of unrequited love returns to our screens featuring soprano Hui He in the devastating title role. One of the most frequently staged operas of our generation, Madama Butterfly follows the story of a young Japanese girl, Cio-Cio San, who falls in love with Pinkerton, an American naval officer. Tragedy unfolds in this sweeping production, which is a perennial audience favourite. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts one of opera's most beautiful and heartbreaking scores. Placido Domingo adds another role to his remarkable repertoire, singing Sharpless for the first time and is joined by a cast that also includes tenor Piero Prettias Pinkerton, and mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShongas Suzuki.
