For all the beauty and romance of the music, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly remains a deeply moving – and troubling – story, fatally bound up with the destructive forces of imperialism. Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s poignant, painterly production stars Asmik Grigorian as Cio-Cio-San with Joshua Guerrero as Pinkerton.
