Notes & Reviews:

"Minghella has minimized the singers' actions...there is no over-emoting. The sad story is allowed to speak for itself...Racette's Butterfly is magnificent. Her full-bodied voice is imbued with a warm vibrato and her phrasing is natural and sharply musical. Just as crucially, she listens and reacts like a young girl...There are several other versions of this opera available on DVD..[but] the choice is pretty obvious - it's this one from the Met." -International Record Review
