  • "Madama Butterfly is a story of love betrayed, the innocent Japanese heroine of the title deserted by her faithless American husband and finally driven to suicide."
  • "For a whole generation of opera goers the beloved soprano Licia Albanese embodied Madame Butterfly. Her vivid and passionate portrayal of the young geisha who tragically falls in love with an irresponsible US Navy officer remains as captivating today as it was half a century ago. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos brings out every nuance of Puccini's exotic and masterful score. Daniele Barioni is Pinkerton and John Brownlee sings Sharpless."
  • "Renata Scotto's sensational Met debut was in the title role, as the hapless Japanese geisha, Cio-Cio-San. Scotto conveyed every stage of Butterfly's tragic journey: from innocent 15-year-old bride, who gives up her family and religion to become more American, to abandoned wife with nothing left to live for. Seldom has the emotional arc from eager anticipation to utter despair been sung so grippingly as here. George Shirley is U.S. Naval Lieutenant B. F. Pinkerton, the source of Butterfly's joy and her desolation."
  • ""Angela Gheorghiu has long cherished an ambition to record one of Puccini's best-loved roles; that of Cio-Cio-San, the Japanese 'Butterfly' who will eventually be broken. Antonia Pappano unites his starry soloists and native Italian forces to produce a stunning and sonsummately idiomatic 'Butterfly' for the 21st century." -- Container."
  • "Puccini's heartbreaking drama comes to life with Liping Zhang and Robert Dean Smith in the leading roles of the young Japanese geisha and the American Navy lieutenant whose arranged marriage ends in tragedy. Maria Zifchak is Suzuki, the faithful servant, and Luca Salsi sings U.S. consul Sharpless. Plácido Domingo conducts one of the most romantic and colorful scores in the repertoire."
  • "The magnetic Patricia Racette delivers a vocal your-de-force as the young geisha Cio-Cio-San whose life is destroyed by Marcello Giordani's Pinkerton, the dashing US Navy Lieutenant who plays with her feelings. Patrick Summers conducts one of Puccini's most melodious scores, with Maria Zifchak as Cio-Cio-San's faithful servant Suzuki and Dwayne Croft as the American consul Sharpless, who sees the tragedy coming but is unable to prevent it."
  • "Book (139 p. :"
  • "This is a wonderful example of why Dorothy Kirsten was considered one of the great singing actors of her time. She manages to sound like the 15-year-old Cio-Cio-San, shy, but filled with delight as she begins her new life as the wife of U.S. Navy Lieutenant B. F. Pinkerton (Eugenio Fernandi). As the tragedy of her abandonment unfolds, Kirsten conveys all the raw emotion without losing the transparent sheen of her voice. And with the great Dimitri Mitropoulos conducting, there is emotion galore."
  • "Renata Scotto was particularly acclaimed for her searing portrayal of Cio-Cio-San, the teenaged geisha known as Madama Butterfly in Puccini's "Japanese tragedy." This broadcast, recorded less than three months after her Met debut in the same role, captures all the emotional intensity of her performance, from youthful exuberance to defiance to eventual defeat. The cast also includes John Alexander as U.S. Navy Lieutenant Pinkerton, Joann Grillo as Suzuki, Butterfly's faithful maid, and John Robert Dunlap as Sharpless, the American consul who is helpless to prevent the tragedy."
  • "Madama Butterfly concerns the disastrous results of a young American naval officer's marriage to a pretty geisha."
  • "Libretto contains text by Daniel S. Brink, synopsis of the opera, the complete text of the libretto with annotations in both English and Italian and a critical historical commentary. The text also includes the background of the composer, biographies of the principal singers and conductor."
