Madame Butterfly

The pictures below are snapshots of the first act of Madame Butterfly. It does not do justice to the opera itself - when it is played again, I can try again.

The American, Pinkerton, sings with his bride, Cio-Cio (Madame Butterfly), in his house overlooking the bay.

On Friday, August 13, Mr. Bianco broadcast Handel's Semele. Set in Ancient Roman times, I was unable to picture it taking place in buildings, since all I know of Ancient Rome is ruins. So I kept the set simple. Enjoy!
