Dallas Opera presents Madame Butterfly simulcast
The Star in Frisco is the new location for the next free Dallas Opera simulcast. The classic Italian opera Madame Butterfly will be simulcast live from the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House. The program will be hosted by KLUV Radio’s Jody Dean and The Dallas Opera’s Education Program Senior Manager Kristian Roberts. Activities include a Family Fun Zone from 4:30-6:30 pm, contests, behind-the- scenes interviews, and a WB Classics cartoon. Opera simulcast begins at 7:30 pm.
With poignant melodies, unforgettable characters and a heart-wrenching storyline, Madame Butterfly has captivated audiences and dampened handkerchiefs for more than 100 years. Loosely based on true events in Nagasaki, Japan, Madame Butterfly tells the tale of a naïve Japanese girl, Cio-Cio-San (Butterfly), blinded by her love for a callous American naval officer.
