Madama Butterfly

Anthony Minghella’s vividly cinematic staging returns to cinemas, featuring soprano Hui He in the devastating title role. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts one of opera’s most beautiful and heartbreaking scores, with a cast that also includes Andrea Carè as Pinkerton, Paulo Szot  as Sharpless, and mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong as Suzuki.


Conductor: Pier Giorgio Morandi

Production: Anthony Minghella

Set Designer: Michael Levine

Costume Designer: Han Feng

Lighting Designer: Peter Mumford

Choreographer: Carolyn Choa

Cast: Hui He (Cio-Cio-San), Elizabeth DeShong (Suzuki), Andrea Carè (Pinkerton), Paulo Szot (Sharpless)


Hui He stars as Cio-Cio-San, the devoted geisha who gives everything for the American naval officer Pinkerton, sung by Andrea Carè. Elizabeth DeShong is her devoted companion Suzuki. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production.


Brazilian baritone Paulo Szot adds a new role to his Met repertory as Sharpless, a role that he has previously sung at Marseilles Opera. A Tony Award–winner for his performance on Broadway in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, he made his Met debut in 2010 as Kovalyov in the company premiere of Shostakovich’s The Nose. His other roles with the company include Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen, Lescaut in the 2012 new production premiere of Massenet’s Manon, Dr. Falke in Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, and the Captain in John Adams’s The Death of Klinghoffer. Other roles this season include Frank in Weill’s Street Scene at Opéra de Monte-Carlo and Don Alfonso in Mozart’s Così fan tutte at the Paris Opera.
