Butterfly with Wings of Steel

Every country large enough to have provinces should have a touring opera company, even if only to prove that opera is not just for big city dwellers under scrutiny for elitism. This year De Nederlandse Reisopera is celebrating 60 years of presenting exciting new musical talent and intriguing productions in various Dutch cities. Currently, they are touring with that beloved perennial, Madama Butterfly, featuring Annemarie Kremer’s steel-resolved geisha. Some of the venues are already sold out, but are keeping a waiting list. You can never go to enough Butterfly productions, and this one gives you several excuses to die with Cio-Cio-San one more time, as I report for Bachtrack.
