Lyric Opera of Chicago, A ‘Butterfly that soars

Lyric Opera of Chicago's current revival of its 2013 production of Puccini's Madama Butterfy is a performance that soars. With superb singing from an electrifying cast, led by Puerto Rican-born soprano Ana Maria Martinez as the doomed geisha Cio-Cio- San and Brian Jagde as her exploitative suitor Lt. B. F. Pinkerton, expert direction from Louisa Muller and firm, yet inspired conducting in the pit by Henrik Nanasi, this is a must for inclusion on your calendar now through March 8. Visit lyric opera.org for schedule and ticket information.
