Live streamLive stream

Puccini's 'Madama Butterfly' is an opera in three acts with an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. The opera is based in part on the short story 'Madame Butterfly' (1898) by John Luther Long, which in turn was based partially on stories told to Long by his sister Jennie Correll and partially on the semi-autobiographical 1887 French novel Madame Chrysanthème by Pierre Loti. In 1904, a U.S. Naval officer named Pinkerton rents a house on a hill in Nagasaki, Japan, for himself and his soon-to-be wife, 'Butterfly'. Her real name is Ciocio-san. Performers:

Cio-Cio San, Madama Butterfly: Lianna Haroutounian.
Suzuki: Ana Ibarra.
Kate Pinkerton: Mercedes Gancedo.
Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton: Jorge de León.
Sharpless: Damián del Castillo.
Goro: Christophe Mortagne.
Prince Yamadori. Isaac Galán.
Bonzo: Felipe Bou.

Gran Teatre del Liceu Choir and Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: Giampaolo Bisanti.
