PUSS IN GUMBOOTS Art Beatwith Chris Harrowell Opera season announced ONE of the most popular of all operas will open next year’s season. In April, the NBR New Zealand Opera delivers Puccini’s tender love story, Madame Butterfy. Featuring the famous Hum- ming Chorus and One Fine Day, the opera juxtaposes the youth and innocence of Cio-Cio San (Butter- fy) with the callousness of Pinker- ton, the American naval offcer. Set in the Japanese city of Naga- saki about the turn of last century, the new production is created by Australia’s award-winning Kate Cherry. General-director of the NBR NZ Opera, Aidan Lang, says Cherry and designer Christina Smith have created a “stylish and exquisite set with a minimalist Japanese aes- thetic and gorgeous period cos- tuming”. Australian soprano Antoinette Halloran plays Cio-Cio San and Italian tenor Piero Pretti is Lieu- tenant Pinkerton. The company’s other 2013 pro- duction is Richard Wagner’s frst great opera, The Flying Dutchman. “This is a fantastic, big opera with an incredibly challeng- ing score, strong and enigmatic characters, brooding tension and boundless emotion,” says Lang. Australian Matthew Lutton directs the production. Irish soprano Orla Boylan sings Senta, while top New Zealand bass Paul Whelan plays Daland, British tenor Peter Auty is Erik, and Welsh bari- tone Jason Howard returns as the Dutchman. Madame Butterfy ■ is performed on April 18-28. The Flying Dutch- man plays on October 5-12. Both productions will be at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre, cen- tral Auckland.
