LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER presents New York City Opera’s current production of MADAMA BUTTERFLY. Written four decades before World War II, Puccini’s MADAMA BUTTERFLY has only become more relevant as history has unfolded. This poignant story of a disastrous clash of cultures is elegant in its simplicity, making Puccini‚s luscious score downright transcendental. The intimacy of this production, starring James Valenti and Shu-Ying Li, gives the tragic finale devastating impact.

LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER is made by a possible by a major grant from MetLife. In addition to underwriting from MetLife, the series is also made possible with generous support from Thomas H. Lee and Ann Tenenbaum and the Robert Wood Johnson 1962 Charitable Trust.
