Madama Butterfly -Love duet- K.Opolais, J.Valenti - Royal Opera House
Live from Royal Opera House, Covent Garden - Puccini's MADAMA BUTTERFLY with fantastic cast: James Valenti as Pinkerton and Kristine Opolais as Cio-Cio-San. Young soprano Kristine Opolais (replacing Patricia Racette) was fabulous Cio-Cio-San with real and true emotions, she is real actress and I am not afraid to compare her with such Puccini interpreters - stars as Renata Scotto, Maria Callas, Renata Tebaldi, Angela Gheorghiu.
