Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : Madama Butterfly
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Giacomo Puccini, the most significant Italian opera composer to follow in the footsteps of Giuseppe Verdi, discovered the foundation for Madam Butterfly in London where he had traveled for the first performance of his Tosca in June 1900. Puccini immediately recognized the moving effect of the tragic single-act drama, and towards the end of the year he decided to use it as the basis for an opera. This Scala production of 1986 is characterized by an authentic Far Eastern flair. The Japanese director Keita Asari had at his disposal a decor and costumes team and two exceptional vocalists to perform the main roles from Asia.
