Hui He stars as Cio-Cio San, the devoted geisha who gives everything for the American naval officer Pinkerton, sung by Andrea Carè.

Elizabeth DeShong (who delighted Hop audiences last year in the English Concert’s Semele) is her devoted companion Suzuki, and Plácido Domingo adds another role to his remarkable repertoire, singing Sharpless for the first time. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts Anthony Minghella’s vivid, cinematic staging of this timeless opera that triggers ideas about cultural and sexual imperialism for people far removed from the opera house.
