About the Event
Puccini's emotional tragic opera, 'Madama Butterfly', will be presented in a unique production, including the most important scenes of this wonderful work.
The 'Opera in the Crypt' series is a unique form of presenting opera at its very essence. With piano accompaniment, talented singers in costumes perform the works in the exceptional, intimate atmosphere of the crypt under St. Peter's Church. Through the short distance between audience and musicians you can experience opera in a way you have never heard or seen it before.
