Madama Butterfly by G Puccini and performed by Villa InCanto
The opera tells of the heartbreak of Madama Butterfly, a 15 year old Japanese girl, who abandons her people and her religion in a marriage to Pinkerton, a United States Naval Lieutenant. In addition to its powerful storyline, the solos contained in the opera achieved unprecedented fame. During a three-year wait for the husband's return from the USA, Madama Butterfly sings what has probably become known as the most popular soprano aria ever written, "Un bel di vedremo" (One day he will come back). Anguished when her husband returns with another wife, Madama Butterfly commits suicide, bringing the opera to a dramatic close.
