Madame Butterfly: Art Nouveau, Adventure, & Arrogance With Baila Miller

Date: August 1, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm

The opera, Madama Butterfly, written by Giacomo Puccini in 1904, is a tragic opera that has proven to be a perennial favorite the world over. It is a given that the love story of a worldly Officer–an opportunist and a cad and a young, innocent girl breaks your heart in all the right places, BUT have you ever wondered why his name is Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton as opposed to Joe Smith or Mike Jones? Consider another thing, “WHY would an American Officer and a Japanese Girl, living in a traditional Edo house, be singing in Italian?” Curiouser and curiouser!
