It's one of the most classic love stories of all time as portrayed through the music of the one and only Giacomo Puccini. As a start to their 2014-2015 season, the Florida Grand Opera is starting off with the timeless story of Madama Butterfly featuring a cast that is spellbinding. For those who will be seeing this for the first time, here is a little info.....
When he leaves for America, everyone believes Butterfly has been abandoned. Clinging to hope and the promises Pinkerton made, Butterfly keeps vigil for three years with her faithful servant and the young son—Pinkerton’s son—she gave birth to not long after his departure.
