About The Event
Anthony Minghella’s breathtaking production has thrilled audiences ever since its premiere in 2006. Kristine Opolais reprises her acclaimed portrayal of the title role, opposite Roberto Alagna as Pinkerton, the naval officer who breaks Butterfly’s heart. Hei-Kyung Hong and Massimo Giordano star in a second set of performances. Karel Mark Chichon conducts. The opera is sung in Italian.
All ticket holders are invited to attend a closing night reception at 6PM—one hour prior to the presentation.
