A timeless tale of honor, love, and selfless devotion, Madama Butterfly, is quite simply, powerhouse romantic opera. Puccini’s luminescent ‘Humming Chorus’ holds all the promise of a summer’s night, all the perfume of cherry blossoms — and all the anguish of a young girl desperately in love.
The production was well designed by Russell Cohen, and it was a work of minimalist perfection with raised platforms placed in a large shallow pool of water enclosed with sliding walls of bamboo and paper.
