ARTISTIC DIRECTOR,
Mark Sforzini

Cio-Cio San renounces her family and religion to be with the man she loves.  She is unwavering in her faith that Pinkerton will return to Japan to take his proper place as her husband and father to their child, but the American naval officer has his own cultural ideas of marriage.  This ever-popular Puccini opera is one of Maestro Sforzini’s favorite scores to conduct and is one of the world’s great tragic operas.  Prepare to be moved to the depths of your soul and bring your handkerchief.
