Absinthe & “Butterfly” 

Thu, Dec 1: 3:45-11:15pm

Let our private coach whisk you away for a delicious, interesting and musical evening! Begin with a Three-Course Dinner w/Wine in the Private Room at Absinthe Restaurant. Gain insights into the evening’s performance with Exploring Opera: Puccini’s Delicate Geisha – a lecture with audio clips presented by James Sokol. Next head to San Francisco Opera where cultures clash when a trusting young geisha marries an American naval officer stationed in Nagasaki. Puccini’s Madama Butterfly has soaring music that takes us on an emotionally charged journey through a timeless tale of innocence, betrayal and sacrifice towards one of the most moving finales in opera! Tonight’s cast features soprano Lianna Haroutounian (“one of the major voices of our time.” –Opera Today) whose performance of Butterfly Opera News described as “...a resounding success…opulent, heart-stealing.”
