Lianna Haroutounian as Cio-Cio San and Damián del Castillo as Sharpless in the cast of Madama Butterfly at the Liceu


Madama Butterfly, one of the most beloved operas of Italian verismo, returns to the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona in the highly-acclaimed Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier production. It will be staged from January 12th through 29th and in it the Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian will make her debut at the Catalan theatre, singing the role of the main character, the Japanese geisha Cio-Cio San. The baritone Damián del Castillo will give life to Sharpless in this staging coproduced by the Liceu and the Royal Opera House of London. Giampaolo Bisanti will conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica y el Coro del Gran Teatre del Liceu.

We will soon see Lianna Haroutounian in Iolanta at Les Arts and in Don Carlo at the Hamburgische Staatsoper and we will have the chance to see Damián del Castillo in Il Finto Sordo at the Fundación Juan March and at the ABAO-OLBE.
