Sarasota Opera Adds 12th Performance of Madama Butterfly

Coconut Telegraph

Due to overwhelming demand, Sarasota Opera has added a 12th performance of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly on Sunday, March 12 at 7:30pm. Since the opera opened on February 11, every performance has been a sell-out with limited ticket availability for upcoming performances. Set in Japan around 1900, the story follows a young geisha Cio-Cio San, affectionately known as Madama Butterfly, who is swept off her feet by the American Naval Officer, B.F. Pinkerton. Leaving her with promises of returning one day, Butterfly waits faithfully for his return which comes three years later, but with unexpected disappointments and a tragic end. Filled with Puccini’s most expansive melodies, Madama Butterfly is at the top of a very short list of most performed and best loved operas of all time.
