Puccini's Madama Butterfly
Madama Butterfly: 20 September - 1 October 2017
(30 September: Performance)
Opera da Camera Oscura, in collaboration with Dublin Opera Studio, will focus on a production of Puccini's Madama Butterfly, sung in Italian, with performances in a theatre in full costume and with a small chorus and piano accompaniment. Rehearsals will be in Thessaloniki, but the performance will be in Tirnavos - the tsipouro capital of the world! It's close to Thessaloniki and we will arrange a mini-bus for transportation.
There will be 1 main cast for this production, with an extra day of filming for any desired video edits. We may offer some places to covers for main roles.
Singers must know their roles off book and be ready to jump into action from day 1.
