1.0 out of 5 stars MADAM BUTTERFLY, 18 Dec 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Puccini: Madama Butterfly [DVD] [2011] [Region 1] [NTSC] (DVD)
MADAM BUTTERFLY IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE OPERAS BUT I DID NOT LIKE WATCHING THE DVD.THE SINGING IS FINE BUT BUTTERFLY, BECAUSE OF HER APPEARANCE, IS NOT WELL CAST. THIS MAY SOUND NASTY BUT I ALWAYS HAVE A VISION OF A PRETTY, SMALL JAPANESE GIRL AS BUTTERFLY. IT IS FINE TO LISTEN TO BUT NOT TO WATCH!

It is very unlikely that you will get a small and young girl able to sing the role of Butterfly which is vocally very demanding. And this especially so in the huge Met House. Usually the sopranos capable of taking on this role are rather more mature. Some maturity and life experience is also necessary to portray the anguish that Butterfly goes through.
