Wiener Staatsoper stages Madama Butterfly with Lianna Haroutounian in the role of Cio-Cio-San


Lianna Haroutounian will give life to Cio-Cio-San in Puccini's opera Madama Butterfly. The Wiener Staatsoper will give three performances, on November 6th, 9th and 11th, under the musical direction of Jonathan Darlington and stage direction of Josef Gielen. On stage with Haroutounian, in the main roles, will be Teodor Ilincai as B.F. Pinkerton and Gabriel Bermúdez as Sharpless.

The Armenian soprano has taken on this role several times already, always to great success, in such emblematic venues as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the San Francisco Opera, the Seattle Opera and the Staatsoper Hamburg.

And she will be singing the main role of Madama Butterfly again soon, at the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona.
