Opera Expert to Preview 'Madama Butterfly'

Veteran opera lecturer Norm Hollingshead will be at Key Center Library for a presentation on “Madama Butterfly”.

Come learn about opera from an expert during a free event at , 8905 KPN, on Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m.  

Veteran opera lecturer Norm Hollingshead will inform and entertain with an enthusiastic preview of the Seattle Opera production of Giacomo Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly”.

The opera tells the tale of a Japanese maiden who catches the fancy of a caddish American Naval officer, crosses cultural boundaries to become his bride, and grapples with a serious dilemma while faithfully awaiting his return.

Puccini’s story of tradition, romance, yearning and sacrifice has remained one of the world’s most beloved operas for more than a century.

This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Key Center Library. Participants may also sign up to attend a Seattle Opera performance of “Madama Butterfly” with the Friends of the Key Center Library.
