Opera in the Theaters

Below find an advance sketch from the Met of our next and the season’s last in-theater-opera: Madama Butterfly by Giocomo Puccini.  The live matinee transmission reaches our Century theaters on May 11, 9:55am, and will be repeated the following Wednesday at 1:00pm and 6:30pm.

“Extraordinary soprano Asmik Grigorian tackles the demanding role of Cio-Cio-San, the loyal geisha at the heart of Puccini’s devastating tragedy. Tenor Jonathan Tetelman stars as the callous American naval officer Pinkerton, whose betrayal destroys her. Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong reprises the role of the steadfast maid Suzuki, and baritone Lucas Meachem is the American consul Sharpless. Acclaimed maestro Xian Zhang takes the podium on May 11 to conduct Anthony Minghella’s vivid production. “

The program of eight operas for the next season has been announced and features four of my favorites: Tosca, Aida, the Marriage of Figaro, and the Barber of Seville.
