SIDEBAR Madama Butterfly: Representing the Culture
Madama Butterfly • 2m 42s
While created by an Italian composer and librettist, Madama Butterfly is an opera whose compelling plot and music is intrinsically tied to the rich history and culture of Japan. As we re-examine how we present these works, authenticity in portrayal provides a new lens with which audiences can continue to appreciate one of the most universally cherished operas in the repertoire.
This special SIDEBAR from The Atlanta Opera Film Studio features Kevin Suzuki, Cultural & Movement Advisor, as he breaks down the various ways an informed approach to this classic production can create a more inclusive Butterfly for those on stage and in the hall.
