The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century
Western artists’ romanticised views of Japan. Puccini’s music brings alive the
birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval
officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his
young, innocent bridge.
Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for
his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense gripping journey
from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice.
Sung in Italian with English Subtitles
