I llive in Sasebo, an adjacent city to Nagasaki. Last night, i watched a television production of the "Madame Butterfly Story". Much of it was fiction of course, though true to some degree. After seeing this television production I wanted to learn more. I have never been a great fan of Opera, though i love all kinds of music. I was truly moved by this performance. After viewing this video i understand why regular opera attendees become so emotional. Now i need to learn Italian so that i can better follow what is being sung. I am happy to have made this purchase.
This is one of the best performances i have ever witnessed. I had the privalge of watching this performance at Buckingham Palace, and I was blown away. BRAVO!!!
