Ivy Alliance Night at SF Opera - Puccini's "Madama Butterfly"

Ivy Alliance and San Francisco Opera invite you to "Madama Butterfly" on Friday, November 5, with a complimentary pre-performance reception and private introduction to the opera, all at a 40% discount off regular ticket prices.

Puccini's great tragic love story returns in a new-to-San Francisco production by Broadway legend Harold Prince (producer of Sweeney Todd and The Phantom of the Opera). Daniela Dessì, acclaimed by Opera News for her “penetrating, extravagant, unabashedly emotional” voice, is Cio-Cio-San, a young Japanese geisha who falls for a charismatic but callous American sailor. This classic story of colliding hearts and cultures features some of the most soaring and captivating music in opera.

Harold Prince's staging is infused with touches of traditional Japanese theater. When this production was presented by the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera News called it “one of the most beautiful in Lyric Opera of Chicago's repertory.”

Prior to the performance, please join Ivy alums for a complimentary wine reception and private talk with guest speaker Sheri Greenawald, San Francisco Opera Center Director, in the Ballet Studio of the War Memorial Opera House. Participants will be sent reception directions a few days prior to the event.
