Giacomo Puccini

 

Giacomo Puccini
MADAMA BUTTERFLY
Staatsoper Hamburg, 2012


Soloists: Alexia Voulgaridou, Cristina Damian, Teodor Ilincai
Conductor: Alexander Joel
Director: Vincent Boussard

In 2012, the Hamburg State Opera presented a new production of Giacomo Puccini’s masterpiece “Madama Butterfly”. The internationally renowned director Vincent Boussard stages the opera, collaborating with star fashion designer Christian Lacroix and set designer Vincent Lemaire. Together they succeed in bringing to life the moving tragedy of the young Japanese geisha Cio-Cio San in a stylish and sophisticated production that focuses on the title role, impressively portrayed by Greek soprano Alexia Voulgaridou. Subtly conducted by Alexander Joel, the dynamic cast includes Romanian Tenor Teodor Ilincai as Cio-Cio San’s love interest, B.F. Pinkerton and Estonian baritone Lauri Vasar as Consul Sharpless. “Madama Butterfly” contains an enormous wealth of psychological poetry. Through his music, Giacomo Puccini lends his characters extremely rich and complex profiles and created an extraordinary explosive force.
