Portland Opera will mark the start of the 2019/20 season with Giacomo Puccini's powerful drama Madama Butterfly.

Even people familiar with August Strindberg may be surprised to learn that he wrote plays for children. The best example is 'The Black Glove,' his final Chamber Play. Its place in history has been obscured by a historical fluke: it premiered in 1911, after the close of Strindberg's Intimate Theater, which it was written for. This kept it out of many anthologies.
