Inland Northwest Opera will present Madame Butterfly for two performances only: 7:30 PM Friday and 2 PM Sunday at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. The opera is sung in Italian with English supertitles. Dawn Wolski, general director, and soprano Elizabeth Caballero stopped by the studio to talk with Verne about what the audience can expect, about bringing the lead role of Cio-Cio-San to life, and to share some of the music written by Puccini for the opera, which moves listeners from anticipation and hope to betrayal and despair.
