The English National Opera presents the Puccini classic Madam Butterfly at the London Coliseum. Anthony Minghella’s production of the tragic opera has been seen before with critical praise heaped upon it so its return to the capital in 2013 ensures plenty of People are going to flock to the London Coliseum.
The piece has been performed all over the world since it was first premiered at La Scala in Milan in 1904 and Minghella’s was then seen first when it was presented by the ENO in 2005. It was his operatic debut and won him widespread praise that has ensured the production’s return in 2013. Though Minghella sadly passed away in 2008 it returns with Sarah Tipple directing and a cast that includes Dina Kuznetsova and Mary Plazas as Butterfly.
The story focuses on Butterfly, a Japanese girl who falls for Pinkerton, a US officer, with whom she weds. Later Butterfly gives birth to a baby son and awaits the return of Pinkerton, who has since made his way back to the United States.
Pinkerton is portrayed onstage by Gwyn Hughes Jones and Timothy Richards, whilst the role of Suzuki has been given to Pamela Helen Stephen. Further cast members include George Von Bergen, Alun Rhys-Jenkins, Mark Richardson, Alexander Robin Baker and Catherine Young.
In a year that also brings us the return of Fidelio and a production of Die Fledermaus, Madam Butterfly runs at the London Coliseum from Monday 14th October 2013.
