Puccini: Madam Butterfly

Chandos presents a sparkling new account in English of one of Puccini’s greatest operas.

This release is performed by a cast of world-renowned singers. Paul Charles Clarke, who takes the role of Pinkerton in this recording, received great critical acclaim for his portrayal of the title role in Chandos’ release of Gounod’s Faust.

The libretto translation is based on that used in the US tour of 1906 which was supervised by Puccini.



'…another in Chandos' splendid Opera in English series…'
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 3011(2) (Don Pasquale)

'The high standard of the Chandos Opera in English series is well maintained in this performance.'
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 3036(2) (Il trovatore)

'…this issue should convince doubters of the merits of such a series.'
Opera Now on CHAN 3000(2) (Tosca)

'A clear recommendation for those wanting Butterfly in English; even those who don't will find Abel's handling of the score absorbing from first to last.'

'This is an issue to delight far more than devotees of opera in English… I look forward to more in the series.'
Gramophone on CHAN 3000(2) (Tosca)

'…this is a performance that will undoubtedly give much pleasure and merit repeated hearings.'
BBC Music Magazine Pick of the month
