Opera Omaha Presents MADAMA BUTTERFLY


Opera Omaha Presents MADAMA BUTTERFLY

Opera Omaha will open its 2019/2020 season with the return of Jun Kaneko's Madama Butterfly, his premiere opera production design, which debuted at Opera Omaha in 2006. Since it's opening, Kaneko's Madama Butterfly has painted the stages of San Francisco Opera, Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center, Atlanta Opera, Opera Philadelphia and many others, garnering national acclaim and adoration.

In this stunning production of Puccini's romantic masterpiece, an innocent young Japanese woman swept away by a dashing American naval officer is the heroine of a tragic tale of love, betrayal and, ultimately, sacrifice. With its heartbreaking melodies, Madama Butterfly has earned a place in history as one of the most popular operas of all time.

Conductor Joseph Rescigno and Director Leslie Swackhamer return to Omaha to lead an internationally acclaimed debut cast.
