Madama Butterfly

The Met Opera HD Encore Broadcast

Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production of Puccini’s tragedy returns to cinemas this summer in a stunning performance recorded live from the Metropolitan Opera in 2009. Soprano Patricia Racette stars as Cio-Cio-San, the trusting and innocent young geisha who disastrously falls in love with American Navy lieutenant B. F. Pinkerton, sung by tenor Marcello Giordani. Patrick Summers conducts.

Estimated Run Time: 2 hours 45 minutes
Original performance date: March 7, 2009

At The State Theatre, we have an active opera community, The State Theatre Opera Buffs. Every year it keeps growing and we’d love to see it continue. We offer great benefits for those that show their support by joining. The continuation of the opera broadcasts hinges on your support.
