A tender kiss can conceal the hardest of hearts.
Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning production returns to the London Coliseum. His staging combines cinematic images and traditional Japanese theatre.
In Puccini‘s story of unrequited love, Cio-Cio San, a young Japanese girl, falls in love and marries American naval officer Pinkerton. He goes back to the US before the birth of their son leaving Cio-Cio San to await his return. Natalya Romaniw, last season’s acclaimed Mimì (La bohème) at ENO, sings the title role for the first time in London. She is joined by tenors Dimitri Pittas and Adam Smith who share the role of Pinkerton.

Great music, story lacked substance
The acting and music was fantastic, but I was disappointed with the story telling aspects of the Opera.

A wonderful and delicate production. My sole regret was that the tenor's voice often lacked the power to be easily heard from the 4th row of the dress circle.

Our seats in the dress circle, were fine. We had a good clear view of the stage, the sound was adequate although you couldn't really make out expressions etc, but it didn't detract from the story. We especially loved the stage set and choreography, which was modern for an old story. Sadly 'some' do take the whole experience of opera very seriously and one poor chap had a slight coughing fit and told to "shush" very abruptly by more than one person around him...please, It could happen to anyone!
