At The Opera, Puccini: Madama Butterfly, June 21, 2014


Madama Butterfly is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, with an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. The libretto of the opera is based in part on the short story "Madame Butterfly" (1898) by John Luther Long. Long's short story was dramatized by David Belasco as a one-act play, Madame Butterfly: A Tragedy of Japan (1900). After premiering in New York, Belasco's play moved to London, where Puccini saw it in the summer of 1900. This stunning 1962 RCA recording stars Leontyne Price and Richard Tucker. Erich Leinsdorf conducts.
