The third celebrity event in the Tenth Anniversary season of the Orchestra dell’Arte promises to be a concert to remember: a fully-staged performance of Puccini’s most glorious and romantic opera, Madama Butterfly, with four star soloists from Welsh National Opera to take the lead roles and singers from Flat Pack Opera in the supporting roles.
Puccini was entranced with the idea of music in the theatre – he decided that this was the way forward for his own career. The well-known story of the initial ecstatic meeting of Lt Pinkerton and Cio-Cio-San and the subsequent betrayal, humiliation and tragic ending has become a staple of every major opera company. Puccini has three works in the list of the world’s top five favourite operas.
P.S. Remember to bring the Kleenex!
Orchestra dell’Arte is the Orchestra-in-Residence for St George’s Hall, Liverpool. Together with renowned conductor Edward Peak, they play throughout the North West of England in many genres from receptions and chamber music to symphony concerts and opera galas. 2019-2020 is our Tenth Anniversary Season and they are set to delight our audiences with some of the most inspiring music ever written and now performed by world class soloists.
Date & Time: 3pm, Sunday 14 June 2020 (Doors Open: 2pm)
