Join us for a program that explores the music and song of this world-famous opera inspired by 19th century Japan. Anthony Barrese, Artistic Director and Chief Conductor for Opera Southwest, will examine the development of the opera’s music, including attempts by Giacomo Puccini to recreate a "realistic" musical atmosphere of Japan. Live musicians will provide musical excerpts to accompany the talk.
