Madame Butterfly – Mansfield Symphony Orchestra

Soprano Jacqueline Quirk (Madame Butterfly) deftly negotiated the soaring romantic melodies her character necessitated. She melted the audience’s hearts in Act 2 with the signature aria, “Un bel di” (one fine day). The voices of the two characters balanced well in the celebrated love duet which concludes Act 1 of the opera, “Viene la sera.”
Overall, it was a superb evening of music making.
The audience gave the performers a well-deserved standing ovation during the curtain call.
Bravo, Maesto Franz and Company!
