MADAMA BUTTERFLY
by GIACOMO PUCCINI

Cio-Cio-SA'an = Keiko Kamegawa

PER ÅKE ANDERSSON, cond.

How irritating it is to hear/see this heart-wrenching opera and to have people sitting there finding it ludicrous the marriage contract for 999 years. But poor Butterfly she is going to die because she takes it seriously love, marriage but Pinkerton see every thing Japanese as a joke as this custom of leasing houses for 999 years. The clash West/East.

That bloody Pinkerton. Even the American consul who is normally quite cold-blooded tries to warn Pinkerton.

This is a great opera!
