Elizabeth DeShong is her devoted companion Suzuki, and Paulo Szot singing Sharpless. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production.
  2. You’ll be able to meet the faces behind the pens at Ludwig van Toronto, and meet each other too.

Opera Synopsis: Madama Butterfly

Leading sopranos Hui He and Ana María Martínez share the heartbreaking title role of the doomed geisha, with tenors Piero Pretti and Bruce Sledge as the American naval officer who abandons her.

Pier Giorgio Morandi is on the podium for Anthony Minghella’s sweeping production, a perennial audience favourite.
