Inland Northwest Opera brings “Madame Butterfly” to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox for performances at 7:30 tonight and at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Soprano Elizabeth Caballero will star as Cio-Cio-San and the role of Lt. Pinkerton will feature tenor Chad Shelton. Both appeared in the 2018-19 Metropolitan Opera season in New York City. Mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy will appear as Suzuki, a regular with the MET.

“We have raised the bar both in opera talent and stage production,” said Dawn Wolski, general director. “Our set incorporates paper with a nod to Japanese paper designs and we were fortunate to use furnishings from the local Japanese community. This opera will be our biggest endeavor yet.”

Giacomo Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly” tells the story of a young Japanese maiden whose pride and honor are wounded by an American naval officer, leading to heartbreak and tragedy. This production, directed by Fenlon Lamb, will feature an innovative set design constructed by Papermoon Opera Productions. Conducting is Dean Williamson, who is entering his fourth season as music director of the Nashville Opera.

“Madame Butterfly” is sung in Italian with English supertitles. A 30-minute, pre-concert talk will be held one hour prior to the performance.

Tickets range from $23 to $90 and are on sale at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Ave., Spokane, by calling 509-624-1200 or at www.FoxTheaterSpokane.org.
