Opera Idaho: Madama Butterfly

Opera Idaho: Madama Butterfly

One of the most popular operas of all time, Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is near the top of the list of operas performed by Opera Idaho in its 44-year history with five productions. Last performed in 2011 at The Egyptian Theatre, this production return to the Morrison Center for two performances: February 16 & 18. A semi-staged performance will be presented in Ketchum Idaho on February 10, at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood. The opera tells the story Cio-Cio-San, the trusting and innocent young geisha of the title, who disastrously falls in love with American Navy lieutenant B. F. Pinkerton, only to be abandoned by him. Her loyal servant Suzuki and Sharpless, the sympathetic American consul, do all they can but are unable to avert tragedy. Dean Williamson returns to Boise to conduct Puccini's masterpiece. He most recently conducted Il barbiere di Siviglia (2015) for Opera Idaho.
