“Madame Butterfly (great Kristine Opolais) leaves us speechless. Her creation in the first act is tender as petals of flowers. She’s fragile and naive, filled with love and faith. You want to hug her because you know that the story will end tragically as she’s so undeniably sweet and innocent […] Kristine leads the character with perfection, she is THE Madame Butterfly, and she has endless power over the personality. She makes reading her emotions so easy, it’s perfectly clear and seems like they are flowing through her. She’s a natural. Her interpretation is incredible, she was coloring the space with notes and tones et let them go. In a very unusual way, she makes us feel her emotions, and they are strong. It’s highly moving.”
