Phoenix, AZ  85003

Giacomo Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is a very, very good choice for your first opera. Or your 50th. The score’s all that, but the thing that’ll really drag you in is a love story about the most sweet, devoted teenage woman and the most faithless, insensitive shitstorm of a man. It is what it is.

The melody of Butterfly’s aria “Un Bel Dì Vedremo” (from Fatal Attraction and other pop-culture-y settings) will sound familiar, but once you learn what it’s about, it will tear your fucking heart out for the rest of your life. Arizona Opera’s production continues through Sunday, February 5, at Symphony Hall, 75 North Second Street. Showtime on Friday, February 3, is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 to $165 at www.azopera.org or 602-266-7464.
