Episode Summary

EDIT
Madama Butterfly
AIRED:
Richard Eyre's Metropolitan Opera production of Bizet's opera was a hit from the moment it was first unveiled on New Year's Eve 2009. El?na Garan?a gives a thrilling performance as the iconic gypsy of the title--a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside. Teddy Tahu Rhodes is the bullfighter Escamillo, and Barbara Frittoli sings the innocent Micaela. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet's tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.moreless
