Madama Butterfly


Friday, November 1 at 7:30 PM
Sunday, November 3 at 2:30 PM


Granada Theatre

As sad as it is beautiful, Puccini’s shimmering classic has been captivating audiences for over a century.  Set on the hills above the Nagasaki harbor in Imperial Japan, Madama Butterfly is a window to a world of opposing cultures and values. Join OSB for this lush and lyrical production that takes you through the thrill and anguish of love.

Kostis Protopapas conducts. Octavio Cardenas, last with OSB for 2016’s Carmen, will direct. Eleni Calenos (Mimi/La Bohème, ‘18) and Harold Meers (Le Chevalier des Grieux/Manon, ‘17 and Don José/Carmen, ‘16) return as the doomed geisha and sailor.
