Hui He stars as Cio-Cio-San, the devoted geisha who gives everything for the American naval officer Pinkerton, sung by Andrea Care. Elizabeth DeShong is her devoted companion Suzuki, and Placido Domingo adds another role to his remarkable repertoire, singing Sharpless for the first time. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production.

This opera has been deferred from Saturday November 9th to December 14th due to programming considerations. We hope you'll enjoy Madama Butterfly as part of a wonderful weekend of opera, when taken together with Philip Glass' Akhnaken, which will be screened here on Sunday December 15th at 5.55pm. 

The Metropolitan Opera in New York is celebrating its 14th season of the ground breaking Live in HD programme, and with Classical Arts Ireland you can watch Opera on the big screen at Droichead.
