Anthony Minghella's breathtakingly beautiful vision of Puccini's Madama Butterfly returns to the Met Opera. 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 begins as a beautiful love story becomes a heartbreaking tragedy when the abandoned bride must make an agonizing choice. The opera stars Hui He and Ana María Martínez share the heartbreaking title role, opposite Piero Pretti and Andrea Care as the naval officer who leaves Butterfly brokenhearted. 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.
