Last night Stu and I went to see the ENO's production of Puccini's Madam Butterfly at the Coliseum in London's glitzy West End.
It was a sumptuous show filled with beauty, spectacle and stunning performances.
The story of heartless American navy officer who does the dirty on sweet Japanese geisha is full of emotion and this is fully brought out in Anthony Minghella's Oliver Award-winning production. The costumes were amazing, the set a wonder and the lead performers sang and acted their hearts out.
Mary Plazas as Cio-Cio San was simply a triumph.
If you ever get the chance to see this show. Go. It's a delight.
