Madama Butterfly: 2020 Met Opera Encore Movie Poster

Puccini's heartbreaking tragedy about a noble but naive geisha and her callous American lover, Madama Butterfly features a sweeping score and one of opera's most compelling heroines. Late director Anthony Minghella's cinematic staging draws on traditional Japanese theater to offer a vivid backdrop for this wrenching drama.

Soprano Kristine Opolais takes on the title role, and Roberto Alagna sings Pinkerton, the naval officer who breaks Butterfly's heart. Karel Mark Chichon conducts.
