MET in HD: Madama Butterfly
November 16, 2019 (Note date change) 1:00 pm
Anthony Minghella’s vividly cinematic staging returns to cinemas, featuring soprano Hui He in the devastating title role. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts one of opera’s most beautiful and heartbreaking scores, with a cast that also includes tenor Piero Pretti as Pinkerton, baritone Paulo Szot as Sharpless, and mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong as Suzuki.
Scott Morrison will give a pre-show talk in the Byers Studio downstairs at 12:15 with refreshments sponsored by the Opera Company of Middlebury.
