This fully produced opera with orchestra, performed in two acts with one intermission, is sung in Italian with English supertitles.  Kaori Sato performs her signature role as Cio Cio San; Kathryn Cowdrick sings Suzuki, her faithful maid; Josh Kohl is Lt. Pinkerton; Stephen Hartley (Figaro in Opera Southwest's previous season) is Consul Sharpless; and Sam Shepperson portrays the marriage broker Goro.  Madama Butterfly is conducted by Anthony Barrese and staged by David Bartholomew, with set design by Carey Wong.
