MRS. VLAHAKIS!!!!!

Mary Michaels!!!

Bravo!!

Sarah Werfel... Can hardly wait!

Very disappointed not to be given a cast sheet and synopsis. This is a first for State Opera. I have collected these sheets since the 80’s. The Opera was excellent but I was sorry not to see Sorrow blind folded waving his little American flag.

Tasha Tarsha Cameron looks who's being interviewed!

Kylie Brown - watch this...

Gianna Guttilla and Alex Fowler! 😂❤️

It's not a night out unless you bawl your eyes out.

Madama Butterfly is one of the most loved operas, and audiences last night found out why. Don't miss your chance to catch it at the Adelaide Festival Centreuntil 23 November.

Couldn't resist: booked today.

Angus Wood returns to his role of Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly after performing the same role for New Zealand Opera in 2015

“…The standout performance of the evening is Angus Wood as Pinkerton. He portrays Pinkerton as charismatic but entitled, out to get the best of what he can. From his first entrance he holds the stage and his vocal performance is rich, strong, and exhilarating. Wood gives us a performance that allows us to understand why Butterfly falls so deeply in love with him.” - Theatrereview.org.nz

Madama Butterfly is at the Adelaide Festival Centre for a strictly limited season. Book Now at BASS: stateopera.com.au/productions/madama-butterfly/
