The Metropolitan Opera presents Madama Butterfly. Cio-Cio San, a geisha known as Madame Butterfly, dreams of her future. On a hill overlooking the harbor, a wedding is about to take place between Lieutenant Pinkerton, a U.S. Naval Officer, and Madame Butterfly, with whom he has contracted a Japanese marriage. Three years have passed and Pinkerton has vanished, leaving his wife in desperate, poverty-sticken, and unwelcome in the community. Suzuki her faithful servant receives a letter from Lt. Pinkerton stating he has married an American and they want to adopt the son. It all turns tragic when Pinkerton’s ship ports and Cio-Cio San learns of his new wife. She agrees on one condition that Lt. Pinkerton personally gets the boy-as she plots to end her own life. After the show, enjoy a delicious 3-course Italian meal at one of our favorite restaurants.
