Purists may prefer a more traditionally robust, stage-bound Butterfly, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a more visually heartbreaking interpretation. Chinese soprano Ying Huang doesn't rock the rafters with her vocal power; hers is a tender, delicately observed performance. Tenor Richard Troxell's self-seeking Pinkerton is well sung. Overall, this is a haunting cinematic treatment of an enduringly popular opera. --Piers Ford
The rest of the cast was excellent, very beautiful scenery and very good sound..
She conveys the demureness and femininities of Butterfly naturally, and with such ease that I believe part of the character is simply part of her.
This movie is so well-made, so perfect, that after seeing it, you will be a true lover of opera.
Beautiful opera film shot on location (though not in Japan), not on stage. Visually and musically satisfying despite the mostly negative New York Times review of the 1990s. Read morePublished 4 months ago by gramofaun

Very emotive and touching version of this wonderful opera.
Beautifully filmed opera, and with the subtitles made it perfect. Madame Bitterfly is my absolute favorite opera. Highly recommend this DVD.Published 9 months ago by Joyce
