We had a wonderful time last night with the first performance of Madama Butterfly at the King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal last night.
A lovely member of the audience wrote in today to say this:
We attended Madma Butterfly last night at Kings Theatre, and were mesmerized
A lady playing a grand piano, and 9 people in costume transported us a world away, carrying us through joy, love, pain, anger, shame, despair, and in the end great sorrow.Â Butterfly had the voice of a nightingale.
This is exactly what we hope to do — give people a true experience of an opera without the sets and staging, and a message like this means so much to all of us!
Tonight is the chorus dress rehearsal, and tomorrow night is our performance in Yarmouth at Th’YARC!
