This production of one of the world's most popular operas starts Patricia Racette as Cio-Cio-San, Marcello Giordani as B.F. Pinkerton, and Maria Zifchak as Suzuiki in Anthony Minghella's production from the 2006-2007 Metropolitan Opera Season.
Full Description
Anthony Minghella's stunning production of Puccini's opera opened the Met's 2006-2007 season and was seen by thousands of people around the world as part of the company's Live in HD series. Patricia Racette is Cio-Cio-San, the trusting and innocent young geisha of the title, who disastrously falls in love with American Navy lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton (Marcello Giordani) only to be abandoned by him. Maria Zifchak is her loyal servant Suzuki and Dwayne Croft is Sharpless, the sympathetic American consul who does all he can but is unable to avert tragedy.
