Opera Preview at Blue Hill Library
Friday, November 8, 2019 @ 1:00 pm
Bagaduce Music and Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library will present a preview of Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Madama Butterfly” at the Blue Hill Public Library on Friday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m. A live performance of the opera will be simulcast at The Grand in Ellsworth the following day, Saturday, Nov. 9, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
According to the Met’s website, “Leading sopranos Hui He and Ana María Martínez share the heartbreaking title role of the doomed geisha, with tenors Piero Pretti and Andrea Carè as the American naval officer who abandons her. The great Plácido Domingo makes his role debut as Sharpless, alternating with Paulo Szot and Markus Brück. Pier Giorgio Morandi is on the podium for Anthony Minghella’s sweeping production, a perennial audience favorite.”
All are welcome, no previous opera knowledge is needed and admission is free.
