Madama Butterfly

The Met Opera Live in HD

June 9 
Anthony Minghella’s stark, powerful production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is filled with incredible performances.

Extraordinary soprano Asmik Grigorian tackles the demanding role of Cio-Cio-San, the loyal geisha at the heart of Puccini’s devastating tragedy. Tenor Jonathan Tetelman stars as the callous American naval officer Pinkerton, whose betrayal destroys her. 

Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong reprises the role of the steadfast maid Suzuki, and baritone Lucas Meachem is the American consul Sharpless. Acclaimed maestro Xian Zhang takes the podium on May 11 to conduct Anthony Minghella’s vivid production. 

This live cinema transmission is part of the Met’s award-winning Live in HD series, bringing opera to movie theaters across the globe.
