Poor Butterfly! So began the words of a popular song of many decades ago. The story of Cio-Cio San is told once again in Lyric Opera’s newest presentation of Puccini’s opera. Larry will offer arias sung by Leontyne Price, Beniamino Gigli, Angela Gheorghiou, and Enrico Caruso among others as well as the Metropolitan Opera’s first Butterfly, Geraldine Farrar.
