Chorus of the Staatsoper Hamburg
In 2012, the Hamburg State Opera presented a new production of Giacomo Puccini’s masterpiece Madama Butterfly. The internationally renowned director Vincent Boussard stages the opera, collaborating with star fashion designer Christian Lacroix and set designer Vincent Lemaire. Together they succeed in bringing to life the moving tragedy of the young Japanese geisha Cio-Cio San in a stylish and sophisticated production that focuses on the title role, impressively portrayed by Greek soprano Alexia Voulgaridou.
Subtly conducted by Alexander Joel, the dynamic cast includes Romanian Tenor Teodor Ilincai as Cio-Cio San’s love interest B F Pinkerton, and Estonian baritone Lauri Vasar as Consul Sharpless.
Madama Butterfly contains an enormous wealth of psychological poetry. Through his music, Giacomo Puccini lends his characters extremely rich and complex profiles and created an extraordinary explosive force.
“Impressive both as an actress and a singer, Alexia Voulgaridou has the strongest impact on this consistently musical and sophisticated production. … This is exciting, authentic, modern and perfectly suited to make the allegedly artificial art form of opera a great experience, even for newcomers.” - Hamburger Abendblatt
