    Puccini fuses soaring musical lyricism with deep psychological and emotional depth in one of the most devastating love stories ever told on the opera stage.

    A young geisha turns her back on everything she has known and experienced and, in her marriage to an American naval officer, attempts to recreate herself. In the ensuing clash of cultures, the results are ultimately tragic. Her psychological journey is evoked through music of compelling lyric strength and devastating pathos that reveal her obsessions, her fragility and her endless capacity for love.

    Soprano Yunah Lee makes her BLO debut in her signature role as Cio-Cio San, and mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor debuts as Suzuki.
