Renowned soloists form NY MET Opera and beyond join New Jersey Festival Orchestra to present Puccini’s most famous and most loved opera Madame Butterfly. David Wroe conducts.
Puccini’s irresistible lyric genius has long made Madama Butterfly one of opera’s most enduring tales of unrequited passion. A cast of internationally acclaimed guest performers assembled from Maestro Wroe’s extensive contacts in European and American opera houses joins NJFO to present, staged, acted and in costume, this most heart-rending of stories, breathtakingly beautiful from first love to love child to tragic end.
” We hope that you will join us to hear these fabulous singers,” said Maestro Wroe. “Each of them is a star who has already graced the stages of concert halls and opera houses across the world. With their outstanding technique and artist interpretation of this, Puccini’s most loved and most poignant work, I predict that there will not be a dry eye in the house!”
