Madama Butterfly 

Well... somehow, we managed to pull it off and see Madama Butterfly, in Miami.
I'm not the greatest fan of opera, but it's wonderful to get the opportunity to see it live. And Madama Butterfly is, apparently, the classic opera that's produced by all companies, every few years. I can see why. It has an easy-to-follow plot and fairly simple staging. The music is exciting and the story so moving. (Yes, I did cry... a little.)
I'm grateful to The Big A for getting us free tickets - in the fourth row, right-center orchestra. We were almost too close, since we had to crane our necks back, a bit, to read the translations above the stage.
All in all, it was a very successful, if tiring, week night event.
