A spectacular Arena di Verona production of one of Giacomo Puccini's most popular operas. This superb production visually evokes the opera's Japanese setting and stars Raina Kabaivanska as the tragic heroine and Nazzareno Antinori as Pinkerton.
Madame Butterfly is the heartwrenching story of a beautiful young geisha who sacrifices her family, her religion and, ultimately, her life for her American husband.
