LA Opera Presents Madame Butterfly
LIVE on Classical KUSC
Saturday, November 17th at 7:30PM
A love that knows no boundaries goes horribly wrong in a fateful meeting of East and West. What begins as an idyllic liaison in an enchanting land of cherry blossoms turns into the heartbreaking tragedy of an abandoned bride forced to make an excruciating decision.
Madame Butterfly is directed by Ron Daniels, who made his LA Opera debut with Il Postino. Cio-Cio-San will be sung by soprano Oksana Dyka, tenor Brandon Jovanovich is the naval officer Pinkerton, bass-baritone Eric Owens sings the role of Sharpless, and mezzo-soprano Milena Kitic plays the handmaiden Suzuki.
KUSC's LIVE broadcast of Madame Butterfly will be hosted by Duff Murphy and Alan Chapman.
