From the moment we're invited in as guests to the wedding, promoter Raymond Gubbay's presentation of Madam Butterfly has us hooked. The production, which recently toured the UK, features a set by David Roger that is not only audacious in its use of a 15,000-gallon lagoon to provide a metaphor for isolation, but one that invites reflection upon Pendleton's blatant deceit and Butterfly's naive faith in her husband's fidelity. Love truly is blind, and how acutely it has been framed for us.
