Anthony Minghella's breathtakingly beautiful vision of Puccini's Madama Butterfly returns to The Met. One of the world's best-loved operas, Madama Butterfly tells the tragic story of an innocent young geisha who catches the eye of an American Naval officer and becomes his temporary "wife," only to be left behind when the officer returns to America. What began as a beautiful love story becomes a heartbreaking tragedy when the abandoned bride must make an agonizing choice. Kristine Opolais reprises her renowned interpretation of the title role, opposite Roberto Alagna as the naval officer who leaves Butterfly brokenhearted. Another set of performances star Hei-Kyung Hong, Roberto De Biasio and Gwyn Hughes Jones. Madama Butterfly offers some of the most famous and beautiful arias in opera. Complete your elegant evening at this iconic masterwork with a glass of champagne (or any other non-alcoholic beverage), included with your ticket.
