About the event
Opera Bohemia returns with John Leo Wilkie’s acclaimed chamber production of Puccini’s masterpiece, Madama Butterfly. A star cast is led by Scottish soprano Catriona Clark, a favourite with Opera Bohemia audiences and already highly acclaimed in the role of Cio-Cio-San. Other cast members include former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Louise Collett, Alexander Gibson Opera School graduates Cameron Mitchell and Seumas Begg, and American baritone Whitaker Mills, who recently made his Metropolitan Opera debut. This tale of love, sacrifice and heartbreak promises to be a memorable night for opera lovers and newcomers alike.
Performed with chamber orchestra, under the baton of Alistair Digges, for some performances, and for others in a special arrangement for piano (Andrew Brown) and violin (Colm O Braoin). Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Approx 130 minutes 12A
