Madama Butterfly: 2020 Met Opera Encore

Puccini's heartbreaking tragedy about a noble but naive geisha and her callous American lover, Madama Butterfly features a sweeping score and one of opera's most compelling heroines. Late director Anthony Minghella's cinematic staging draws on traditional Japanese theater to offer a vivid backdrop for this wrenching drama.
