Join OSU Allied Arts in a free screening of the Metropolitan Opera's Madama Butterfly on Nov. 8, 2019! Before each opera one of OSU’s very own vocal performance faculty members will present a 15-20 minute pre-performance lecture covering that night’s opera.

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.
