Puccini: MADAMA BUTTERFLY - Pinkerton
Syracuse Opera - Syracuse, New York (USA)
LEAD SINGERS TAKE FLIGHT IN ‘BUTTERFLY’ - LIM AND HENDRICK CARRY THE SYRACUSE OPERA PRODUCTION OF 'MADAMA BUTTERFLY' A pair of stellar singing and acting performances by the two principal roles helped Syracuse Opera's production of "Madama Butterfly" pack an emotional wallop. I only wish I owned the Kleenex tissue concession in the lobby… Michael Hendrick as Pinkerton has a powerful voice that loses no steam in its high register and that can soar well above Puccini's sizable orchestral accompaniment, as in his "Dovunque al mondo" of Act 1 and the "Love Duet".
