• The Live in HD season concludes with Madama Butterfly. Puccini’s

devastating opera of unrequited love between a young Japanese

girl and an American naval officer is one of the world’s most

popular (and tragic) operas.

• Soprano Asmik Grigorian makes her highly anticipated Met debut

as Cio-Cio-San, with acclaimed maestro Xian Zhang conducting

tenor Jonathan Tetelman as the callous American sailor Pinkerton,

mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong as the steadfast maid Suzuki,

and baritone Lucas Meachem as the American consul Sharpless.

• The timeless score includes a number of melodies familiar to

opera lovers and newcomers alike, including the soaring soprano

aria “Un bel dì” and the evocative Humming Chorus.

• The Met’s beloved production by Academy Award–winning film

director Anthony Minghella returns, using traditional Bunraku

puppetry and Japanese theatrical techniques to beautifully tell

the story, which is set in the port city of Nagasaki at the turn

of the 20th century.
