In Puccini's Madama Butterfly, set in turn-of-the-century Japan, 15-year-old geisha Cio-Cio-San renounces her occupation and religion so that she may marry the American naval officer B. F. Pinkerton. Following their wedding night, Pinkerton must leave but promises to return "when the robins build their nests." Three long years pass and Pinkerton does indeed return, but not to re-unite with the ever-faithful Butterfly. Instead, he wishes to take from her the last bit of happiness she possesses. Soprano Toni Marie Palmertree, having debuted the role of Butterfly at San Francisco Opera in 2016, will reprise the role for Syracuse Opera. CNY native Dinyar Vania returns to play Pinkerton, with baritone Troy Cook (Eugene Onegin) as Sharpless, the American Consul. Glenn Lewis of Pittsburgh Opera will conduct, with Alison Moritz making her Syracuse Opera debut as stage director. Musial theater aficionados will recognize the plot of Madama Butterfly as the inspiration for Claude-Michael Schönberg's Miss Saigon.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
