Yesterday I saw my first opera ever, Madama Butterfly at The Met. It was not only beautiful musically but the visuals were quite good as well. Also, they had the english text displayed on a small screen on the seat in front of you. This made it easy to follow along. All in all, it was a very moving performance. Here is Patricia Racette, who played Cio-Cio San in the production we saw, singing Un bel dì ("One beautiful day").
