Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English
The hit of the 2005–06 London opera season comes to The Met in an exciting new co-production between The Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera and the Lithuanian National Opera. Stage and film director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) presents Butterfly as a Japanese play, complete with Bunraku-style puppets (by Blind Summit Theatre) and translucent Shoji screens designed by Michael Levine. Han Feng’s costumes are a riot of color and Carolyn Choa’s choreography explores the boundaries between East and West.
Singing her signature Butterfly role for the first time at The Met, Cristina Gallardo-Domâs is the doomed Cio-Cio-San. The marvelous tenor Marcello Giordani is the unfaithful Pinkerton, and the deft baritone Dwayne Croft sings the sympathetic role of Sharpless.
