Overview

Soprano Eleonora Buratto takes on the touchstone title role of the tragic geisha, following earlier Met successes as Norina in Don Pasquale and Liù in Turandot. Tenor Brian Jagde is the callous American naval officer who betrays her, alongside mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong as her devoted maid Suzuki and baritones Davide Luciano and David Bizic sharing the role of the consul Sharpless. Alexander Soddy conducts Anthony Minghella’s evocative, ever-popular staging.

A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, and the Lithuanian National Opera
