La Scala: MADAMA BUTTERFLY
After 112 years, Puccini’s audacious original version of his beloved Butterfly, hotly contested at its 1904 World Premiere, returns to the La Scala stage under the baton of Riccardo Chailly. The terrific cast orbits around Cio-Cio-San played by Maria José Siri, an emerging soprano on the greatest international stages.
