Met Opera: Madama Butterfly


Madama Butterfly
by Giacomo Puccini


Kristine Opolais reprises her acclaimed portrayal of the title role, opposite Roberto Alagna as Pinkerton, the naval officer who breaks Butterfly's heart. The lyric beauty of Puccini’s score, especially the music for the thoroughly believable lead role, has made Butterfly timeless.


Conductor: Karel Mark Chichon

Suzuki: Maria Zifchak

Pinkerton: Roberto Alagna

Sharpless: Dwayne Croft


Start time: 10:00 AM on Capital Public Radio.
