Puccini’s Opera Masterpiece, Madame Butterfly, will be performed with 30-piece orchestra by Teatro Lirico D’ Europa at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on Friday, February 7, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. For over a century, Madame Butterfly has survived the test of time, being the most performed opera in the USA and one of the top five in the rest of the world. The opera tells the story of a beautiful geisha named Cio-Cio San, or Butterfly, who marries an American Naval Officer who leaves Japan before finding out he has a son with Butterfly. Years pass, but she always believed he would return to Japan. When he does return with his new wife, grief-stricken Butterfly agrees to give up her son. Tragically, she resorts to her culture’s code of honor in her anguish. This fully-staged production of Madame Butterfly will be performed in Italian with English supertitles. Madame Butterfly is sponsored by Permco, Dinsmore, Huntington Federal, Kevin & Rebecca Craig, I Heart Radio, WSAZ and Herald-Dispatch. Tickets prices are $98.42 / $81.97 / $71.00 / $64.42.
