Program notes

Ethereal, minimalist, zen – some of the many definitions of 'Madama Butterfly' in Bob Wilson's version.

His production, now on at Paris' Opéra Bastille, is already considered a classic, perfect to tell Puccini's "Japanese tragedy," the doomed love story of Cio-Cio-San – a role sung superbly by Bulgarian soprano Svetla Vassileva.
