Ash Lawn Opera Presents: Madama Butterfly

A tale of all-consuming love and ultimate betrayal, Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly has been one of the most beloved operas in the world since its debut in 1904. Set against the backdrop of a rapidly modernizing Japan at the turn of the twentieth century, Puccini’s soaring, poignant masterpiece has permeated our culture, inspiring and appearing in countless other works on stage, on television, in music, and in film. The nationally recognized cast features soprano Eleni Calenos as Cio-Cio San (Palm Beach Opera, Shreveport Opera); Eve Gigliotti (Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera) as her loyal servant Suzuki; Jason Slayden (Gotham Chamber Opera, Arizona Opera) as the dashing but insincere Lieutenant B.F. Pinkerton; Hyung Yun (Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera) as Sharpless, a kind American diplomat who befriends Cio-Cio San;  and Joe Shadday (Glimmerglass Festival, Chicago Opera Theatre) as the scheming Goro. This unforgettable production – featuring four artists who have worked at the Metropolitan Opera – will move and enthrall you, even after the final, tragic notes have been sung.

Ash Lawn Opera Presents: Madama Butterfly

Ash Lawn Opera Presents: My Fair Lady

Book and Lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner | Music by Frederick Loewe

Adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s Play and Gabriel Pascal’s motion picture “PYGMALION”

Lerner and  Loewe’s treasured musical My Fair Lady has been a mainstay of American theater since its hit debut on Broadway in 1956 and the classic 1964 film adaptation starring Audrey Hepburn. The New York Times has called My Fair Lady “one of the best musicals of the [twentieth] century.” Eliza Doolittle, a spirited but impoverished woman in Edwardian London, enlists the help of eccentric professor Henry Higgins to improve her station in life, but things do not go quite as she had planned. Sharin Apostolou (Glimmerglass Opera, Portland Opera), who was praised by The New York Times for her “bright [and] confident” performance in Glimmerglass Festival’s Carousel (2014) makes her Ash Lawn Opera debut as the exuberant Eliza; she will match wits with Curt Olds (Arizona Opera, Central City Opera), as Professor Henry Higgins. With a delightful score and witty dialogue this beguiling musical will charm audiences of all ages.
