One of the most heart-breaking love stories of all time is produced by Wolf Trap Opera in a one-night-only performance with the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by LA Opera’s Grant Gershon. Stage director Tara Faircloth, video and projections designer S. Katy Tucker, and costume designer Rooth Varland return to the Filene Center after their memorable 2014 Carmen. The new scenic design is by Zane Pihlstrom.

Puccini’s lush romantic music is infused with the exoticism of early 20th-century Japan as the young geisha Cio-Cio San gives up everything for the dashing American Lieutenant Pinkerton.

Butterfly at the Filene Center is a perfect evening for new opera-goers.
