The classic “Madama Butterfly” will now be presented in November as part of a festival of two works by Giacomo Puccini, alongside the 2020-21 season-opening production, “La Bohème.” The new dates are November 12, 14, and 17. The staging for this production will be slightly reduced to accommodate both productions. “La Bohème” is set to be performed November 7-15. Both productions will happen at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
“The new Atlanta Opera Puccini Festival allows us to build anticipation of something greater than the sum of its original parts,” said General and Artistic Director Tomer Zvulun in a statement.
