Madama Butterfly: The Book
When you're at Madama Butterfly, stop by the subscribers table in the main lobby to check out Jun Kaneko's book, Madama Butterfly.
This 125 paged souvenir book documents the story of how artist Jun Kaneko collaborated with Opera Omaha to design a contemporary look to the traditional opera. The book is filled with sketches and pictures of the whole creation process, along with a great backgrounder on Puccini, the Madama Butterfly opera and Japan in the early 1900s.
To order your copy, call 402-341-3800 (USA) or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and mention Vancouver Opera. All proceeds from book sales go to benefit Vancouver Opera & KANEKO. For more information on Jun Kaneko, visit his website here.
An awesome keepsake of a visually stunning opera that you won't soon forget.
