Notes & Reviews:
Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfl y - the composer's selfproclaimed favourite work and certainly one of the most beloved operas in the repertoire - is brought to life at the world-famous Arena di Verona. This opulent production, directed by respected fi lm and opera director Franco Zeffi relli, is sung by a cast of excellent singers. Fiorenza Cedolins is a sought after Butterfly singer and her Pinkerton is performed by the renowned tenor Marcello Giordani. The celebrated operatic baritone Juan Pons gives the principled United States consul Sharpless. The performance is lead by long-established Arena di Verona conductor Daniel Oren with all the splendour that a Puccini opera demands. The sum of all this is a gloriously sung musical experience.Notes & Reviews:
