"Every now and then there is a theatrical representation in which every mechanism of the gear glides perfectly oiled and smoothly to the conclusion: such was the case of Madama Butterfly.
Fabio Ceresa's staging is a rare suggestion: this Madama Butterfly has the characteristics of a classic, traditional staging, and at the same time lacerating in its elegant and stylized simplicity."
