Forum Screening of ‘Madama Butterfly’
January 9 @ 7:00 pm
The Forum will present the live screening of the Met Opera’s “Madama Butterfly.” The leading sopranos, Hui He and Ana María Martínez, share the heartbreaking title role of the doomed geisha. The tenors are Piero Pretti and Andrea Carè, as the American naval officer who abandons her. The great Plácido Domingo makes his role debut as Sharpless, alternating with Paulo Szot and Markus Brück; Elizabeth DeShong is Suzuki, sharing the role with Maria Zifchack. Pier Giorgio Morandi is on the podium for Anthony Minghella’s sweeping production, a perennial audience favorite.Concert tickets: general admission $20; teachers $10; students and children under 10 years old are free.
