Puccini’s poignant score follows the tragic tale of Cio Cio San, a young Japanese girl who falls in love with American Naval officer Pinkerton with devastating consequences. Teatro Lirico D’Europa is known for its full-scale orchestrated presentations with beautiful traditional Italian-design sets, costumes and lighting. Sung in original Italian, international soloists, American musicians and chorus will perform under the baton of Metropolitan Opera Conductor Gregory Buchalter. There will be English supertitles.
This concert is part of the Daytona Beach Symphony Society's 71st season at Peabody Auditorium beginning in January.
