Hear the most popular opera in North America, full of Puccini’s sumptuous music interwoven with Japanese motifs. This heartbreaking tale of love, self-delusion, and betrayal takes place in Nagasaki in the early 1890s. A young geisha (Cho-cho-san) deserted by her husband (Pinkerton), a U.S. Naval Officer, chooses to die honorably, rather than suffer in shame after learning of the betrayal.
Special moments include: the soaring Act One Love Duet, and the Act 2 sighting of Pinkerton’s ship and joyous Flower Duet where the fragrance of Spring is released as flower petals are strewn everywhere.Dates: August 10-26 Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 2pm.
Tickets are $20 General and Advanced sale and $16 for Students, Seniors and MTG Members. To purchase advanced tickets by credit card, please visit Brown Paper Tickets. Cash and check only at the door.
