The title character of Madama Butterfly—a young Japanese geisha who clings to the belief that her arrangement with a visiting American naval officer is a loving and permanent marriage—is one of the defining roles in opera. The story triggers ideas about cultural and sexual imperialism for people far removed from the opera house, and film, Broadway, and popular culture in general have riffed endlessly on it. The lyric beauty of Puccini’s score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterfly timeless.

Hui Hestars as Cio-Cio-San, the devoted geishawho gives everything for the American naval officer Pinkerton, sung by Andrea Carè. Elizabeth DeShongis herdevoted companion Suzuki. Brazilian baritone Paulo Szot adds a new role to his Met repertory as Sharpless, a role that he has previously sung at Marseilles Opera.  Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production.
