Kristine Opolais returns to the Semperoper Dresden to star as the title role of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly on April 6, 8, 14, & 18. Previously praised by The New York Times for her “voluptuous, expressive voice”, Opolais stars in Amon Miyamoto’s heartbreaking production that reimagines this classic through the eyes of Cio-Cio-San’s child.

Ms. Opolais shares the stage with Christa Mayer as Suzuki, Nicole Chirka as Kate Pinkerton, Freddie De Tommaso as B.F. Pinkerton, Gabriele Viviani as Sharpless, and Aaron Pegram as Goro, among others. Omer Meir Wellber conducts the Sächsischer Staatsopernchor Dresden and Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden.
