OPERA San Antonio opens the curtain on the 2015-16 Season with the tragic opera Madama Butterfly.
Adapted from the short story "Madame Butterfly," written by John Luther Long, and composed by Giacomo Puccini, the opera is designed to provide a dramatic retelling of a young girl's harsh life during the early twentieth century. Opera goers will get to experience the opera in the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
To enhance your theatre-going experience, OPERA SA created a guide to the opera (found below). The San Antonio Public Library suggests enjoying some of Puccini's other compositions-- both before and after you attend the performance.
