Last Thursday's show was the immortal:
Part of the reason I didn't do a blog for the MN Opera's last production, Lucia Di Lammermoore, is because I was often too interested in what was happening onstage to draw! That's a good problem to have. The same problem came up a lot on Madame Butterfly. It has a very rich story, complex and expressive characters, and lots of background info to deal with. I'll be walking you through Madame Butterfly in the most enlightening way I can —with words, videos, jokes, drawings, and photos.
