From the Opera Santa Barbara website:
“As sad as it is beautiful, Puccini’s shimmering classic has been captivating audiences for over a century. Set on the hills above the Nagasaki harbor in Imperial Japan, Madama Butterfly is a window to a world of opposing cultures and values. Caught in the middle is Cio-Cio san (Japanese for “butterfly”), the doomed heart of the story. The delicate and naive girl believes in love and in her morally dubious American husband. As she stands vigil for years waiting for his return, we join her in this lush and lyrical production that takes us through the thrill and anguish of love.”
Julia Metzler performs Kate Pinkerton and covers Cio-Cio san.
