Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning production is returning to the English National Opera (ENO) at the London Coliseum for a limited season in early 2020.
In Puccini‘s classic opera of unrequited love, Cio-Cio San, a young Japanese girl, falls in love and marries American naval officer Pinkerton. He goes back to the US before the birth of their son leaving Cio-Cio San to await his return.
Natalya Romaniw, last season’s Mimì in the staging of La bohème at ENO, sings the title role for the first time in London.
She is joined by tenors Dimitri Pittas and Adam Smith who share the role of Pinkerton.
Leading British baritone Olivier Award-nominated Roderick Williams is Sharpless. Mezzo Stephanie Windsor-Lewis returns as Suzuki.
Conducting this revival is ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins.
The show is a co-production with the Metropolitan Opera, New York, and the Lithuanian National Opera and is running from 26 February until 17 April 2020.
