THE fourth offering of the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Metropolitan Opera in HD Season 4 features Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly on March 14, 2017 at Greenbelt 3 Cinema 3 in Makati at 6:30pm.

 

Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production of Madama Butterfly enhances Puccini’s drama of unfortunate, doomed love. Soprano Kristine Opolais brings all of her passionate commitment to her portrayal of Cio-Cio-San, the teenage geisha who gives up everything for Lt. Pinkerton. Roberto Alagna is the American naval officer who does not understand the depth of Cio-Cio-San’s love, and whose subsequent marriage to an American woman precipitates Butterfly’s suicide. Maria Zifchak is Suzuki, Cio-Cio-San’s faithful servant, and Dwayne Croft plays the American consul Sharpless, who tries to avert the tragedy. Karel Mark Chichon conducts.

 

The CCP’s Met Opera in HD series features screenings of the latest operatic productions of the Metropolitan Opera in New York through High-Definition digital technology.

 

Other productions scheduled for screening at Greenbelt 3 cinemas for 2017 are Turandot (Giacomo Puccini) on April 4, 2017; and Tristan und Isolde (Richard Wagner) on May 9, 2017.
